ActionSpace is delighted that ActionSpace Artists Andrew Omoding, Linda Bell, Nnena Kalu and Lasmin Salmon will be part of the Radical Craft exhibition opening at Pallant House Gallery on 12 March and then touring UK-wide. ActionSpace will take part in workshops and discussions during the exhibition.

Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making is a Craftspace and Outside In exhibition that will tour the UK in 2016, celebrating creativity by self-taught artists from across the UK and abroad who make work in a private domain outside the mainstream.

Nenka Kalu cocoon

“I particularly admired the baffling but beautiful work made by Nnena Kalu, who like Judith Scott, obsessively wraps and binds her pieces until they resemble large and often colourful cocoons. Part of the attraction of Kalu’s sculptures are that they, almost uniquely here, appear to have no narrative at all; they are pure form”   Marcus Field – Crafts Magazine
