Liadin Cooke, Nostos
- 26 September — 25 October 2014
The exhibition is titled Nostos, Greek for 'homecoming'. Cooke was born in Ireland in 1958 and lived there until 1993, when she moved to London and, later, West Yorkshire. Her work is infused with a sense of place and the modernist ideology of combining art and life. In Nostos her attention is focused specifically on Irish vernacular furniture and forms that fulfil basic human needs, such as a surface to eat at or a place to sleep. Much of this furniture is multipurpose, with doors used as tables or seats as beds. These forms are rooted in the Irish folk tradition and yet the pared down quality and simplicity of living is more reminiscent of minimalist furniture and objects.
