Final works: Journey
[Techne]2 an exhibition that seeks to explore
the relationship between Art & Design, uniting and contrasting works through a shared ethos of ‘Making as Thinking’.
The exhibition features a wide range of unique, hand crafted and limited works, as well as digital and performance-based work.
‘Techne’ (τέχνη) is a Greek term broadly meaning ‘craft’ but including aspects of specialist study, applied knowledge and creativity.
Richard Sennett in The Craftsman(London, Penguin, 2009 p.9) notes that craft in any form entails an “intimate connection between hand and head……a dialogue between concrete practices and thinking”.
