Starting in September, Direktorenhaus will be showing the British artist Eleanor Lakelin for the first time. She is one of the world’s leading wood artists. Lakelin “sheds barks by carving and sandblasting to reveal the organic chaos that prevails in the material itself and forms layers of different textures” and “uses the shape of the vessel and the surface structures to explore these layers and cracks”.
Lakelin’s works have enjoyed international success in museums and private collections. She has received numerous awards, including the QEST Scholarship 2018, the British Wood Award 2017, The Cockpit Arts / Worshipful Company of Turners Award 2011 and was nominated for the Perrier Jouët Arts Salon Prize 2014.
She lives and works in London.
