While self-isolation policies are put in place due to the coronavirus spread, Carpenters Workshop Gallery is joining other art-related institutions in launching digital initiatives to showcase artists’ work. The gallery will launch an online viewing room, titled “Hope and Togetherness,” featuring sculptures, installations and furniture pieces by artist duo Studio Drift, Korean-born designer Wonmin Park, French artist Pablo Reinoso and more.
The online viewing room will include Studio Drift’s striking light installations, Reinoso’s vine-like benches, and Nacho Carbonell’s lamps wrapped in mesh cocoons. Focusing on works informed by fluid lines, biomorphic shapes and integrated designs, “Hope and Togetherness” evokes a sense of unity and solidarity. Atelier Van Lieshout’s sculptures of multiple figures working in harmony with each other further emphasize this collective spirit, while Dutch artist Frederik Molenschot will release three table lamps this week to accompany the online viewing room’s launch. Proceeds will go towards charity.
Check out works from “Hope and Togetherness” in the slideshow above. The exhibition will launch digitally April 3 on Carpenter Workshop Gallery’s website. The gallery’s artists will also open the doors to their studios virtually on the gallery’s Instagram.
