Christopher Kurtz ‘The Traveller cannot see North but knows the Needle can’


13 July – 1 September 2019

Christopher Kurtz first showed at Messums Wiltshire as part of Material: Wood in the summer of 2018 and his participation – alongside his stellar talk on his work and evolution in to one of the most exciting makers working in wood – resulted in an invitation to create a solo response to our thirteenth century barn. The exhibition consisted of a series of fine wooden constellations suspended just above the floor, Christopher’s new sculptures explored the push and pull between craftsmanship, sculpture, design and fine art as a single installation that celebrates his chosen material.
