ABOUT HANDMADE TALES
hangmenProjects presents a contemporary story of crafts by seventeen material-based artists. The curatorial direction reflects along history of the crafts and its connection to both value and gender hierarchies.One of the dividing lines between arts and crafts has been based on a fable that forgets that most forms of art practice are based on knowledge of a technology. While another fable supports the supremacy and subordination of thought and hand -an eternal either-or, which might as well be both-and.There is something important to rewrite here. At hangmenProjects, we will extend seventeen amazing artists' perspectives based on their reality -a handmade storytelling.

Om Handmade tales
hangmenProjectspresenterar en samtida historiesaga med konsthantverk av 17 materialbaserade konstnärer. Berättandet och utförandet speglar en lång historia av hantverk med kopplingar både till värde-och genushierarkier.En av skiljelinjerna mellan konst och konsthantverk grundar sig i en fabel som glömmer att de flesta former av konstutövande bygger på kunskap om en teknik. En annan fabel är över-och underordningen av tanke och hand. Ett evigt antingen-eller, som lika gärna kan vara både-och.
Därom finns något viktigt att berätta, och på hangmenProjects har vi valt 17 konstnärsperspektiv. Utifrån deras verklighet. Ett handgjort historieberättande.
