Event details

This exhibition has formed out of discussions with Bergen Academy of Art and Design Norway (KHiB) in relation to the annual Bergen International Wood Festival.

From Thursday 12 March – Friday 27 March Bonington Gallery will be transformed into a living workshop, studio, discussion room and site-specific exhibition space. On the first day the students will be presented with a supply of reclaimed and disused wood; day-by-day the group will work together to explore ideas and focus on the use of the wood, taking into account its constructive, structural and tactile qualities.

Open to the public throughout, we invite you to watch the exhibition take form and evolve.

Through this practice-based research activity, structures, objects, interventions, drawings, texts, documentation and artefacts will be produced and presented across the period of the exhibition.

Instagram takeoverFor the duration of the Made in Wood exhibition we will be handing over our Instagram account to the students from KHiB and NTU, for them to create a visual diary of their experience.

You’ll be able to follow their story on the Bonington Gallery Instagram feed. In the meantime, take a look at an independent blog from the Bergen International Wood Festival 2014.

Midway Preview Event: Wednesday 18 March 2015, 5 pm - 8 pm, if you would like to attend please email to confirm your attendance.
