Contemporary Responses to the Art of Tailoring

About

In it's previous incarnation, 10 Bootham, the home of Lotte Inch Gallery, was a much loved, family-run tailors shop - C.E. Seymour Tailors. Inspired by this heritage and drawing from the tradition of the master tailor, six contemporary artists offer their own interpretation of all that pertains to the term tailoring.

The fabrics, materials and tools used in the creation of a garment are given a new lease of life and a new set of meanings, via the hand of the sculptor, the lens of the camera and the lead of the artist's pencil. 

Showcasing a selection of work from six talented artists working in very different mediums this exhibition will bring a new objectivity to the idea of the tailor and their tools.

The exhibition will feature work from: Graham Hardy, photography; Hayley Mills-Styles, textiles; Jill Gibson, mixed media sculpture; Kate Haywood, Ceramic Sculpture; Pete Baker, sculpture; and Zosia Olenska, works on paper.
