TWELVE TALL TALES: Storytelling through objects and making

Moonwalk in clogs. Meet a broom with an attitude. Let a machine predict your fate…

Twelve Tall Tales sees twelve artists, makers and designers tell tales through objects, motivated by their ability to contain, convey and inspire stories. Selected by designer Onkar Kular for their narrative potential, this eclectic group of works presents varied and unexpected approaches to translating fictional, humorous, cultural, political and historical stories and references into crafted objects. Works by Åbäke, Auger-Loizeau, Carl Clerkin, El Ultimo Grito, Zhenhan Hao, Hilda Hellström, Hefin Jones, Noam Toran, Dawn Youll, and new commissions by Cecilie Gravesen and Dash Macdonald are shown alongside film, text and photography to highlight the strong links between contemporary making and storytelling.
