As part of the exhibition Thingness: The Collection, a workshop based on constructed histories and narratives: Where did objects within the exhibition come from and what is their story? The process would form an alternative catalogue, featuring an image of each item along with its newly acquired title and narrative.

As part of Thingness: The Collection exhibition, Tony Hayward will be leading the workshop ‘Stuff to Savour’; a workshop that will explore the possibility of collections holding ‘conversations’ with us and each other.

Tony Hayward is an artist, publisher and teacher. Forming collections as reference material is intrinsic to his work and within teaching and publishing. ‘Made in India’ is a unique collection of 400 artefacts of small batch-produced utilitarian objects. He has shown extensively in Europe, US and Asia and is a Visiting Lecturer at a number of institutions including the Royal College of Art and Camberwell College of Arts.

Workshop: Take Me Make Me, Bridget Harvey & Meghan Hutchins

Meghan Hutchins and Bridget Harvey are two makers studying MA Designer Maker at Camberwell College of Arts. They are united by their passion for materials, objects, design and process, small batch production and handwork.

Participants will be presented with small boxes of materials, and given free choice to make whatever they wish with the contents. Materials will be common place and a selection of tools and bindings will be available. Participants are also encouraged to contribute their own materials to the workshop.

Bridget Harvey’s practice manifests in adornments; conceptual or practical objects for body or space, using traditional and non-traditional techniques. The works address questions about making, materials, processes and mending, allowing time to stop and think about actions, objects and choices, and to play. Bridget is exhibiting in The Geometrics at Kingsgate Gallery, and will be undertaking a residency at Anglia Ruskin University, both in April 2013. http://bridgetharvey.co.uk

Meg Hutchins is a jeweller working with a range of materials including porcelain and silver. She chooses materials for their particular sensory qualities, often using them in combination to create contrast between materials. The objects are intended to be touched, prompting interaction between wearer, object, and the wider world. Participants will be presented with small boxes of materials, and given free choice to make whatever they wish with the contents. Materials will be common-place and a selection of tools and bindings will be available. People are also encouraged to contribute their own materials to the workshop. http://meghutchins.com/

Committee (Harry Richardson & Clare Page): Morning Residency at Camberwell Space

3 May 10.30 – 12.30
Camberwell Space

Committee is a partnership between Harry Richardson and Clare Page who met whilst studying fine art. Since then they have conducted a series of experiments in commercial activity that have led them to work within the design industry.

Following their noses, rather than any defined career path, they have come to design products as varied as lighting, rugs, ornaments, furniture, textiles and wallpaper, for brands such as Established & Sons, Moooi and Lladro. During this time they have also maintained a studio practice producing self-initiated and commissioned works borne of academic interest for galleries and institutions around the world.

Morning Residency at Thingness, Camberwell Space

Much of Committee’s work is based upon an investigation and reworking of existing ‘ready-made’ objects – a review of ‘things’ as they are today that asks what objects should become tomorrow.

‘It is our belief that any manufactured object – its function, its aesthetic; how it was made, how it was/is used, and how it will be discarded – offers a rich story of humanity. And that collected together, the world of objects could offer any alien in the universe all it could ever want to know about human beings – our strengths, our frailties, both physical and psychological.’

Chrystel Lebas was born in France and lives and works in London.

She has published two monographs: L’espace temps-Time in Space (2003) and Between Dog and Wolf (2006) and has contributed to numerous Photography and Visual Arts journals.

Stemming from her interest in looking at how landscapes contain psychological significance in relation to visually concealed histories, Chrystel Lebas employs photography and the moving image, to address a wider understanding of the complex encounter between man and nature.

Lebas’s current research (part funded by UAL) supports current photographic and film works made in Scotland drawing from The Natural History Museum collection of Sir Edward James Salisbury’s Botany photographs and The National Galleries of Scotland collections of photography by John Muir Wood.

Lebas is an Associate Lecturer at the UAL and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Richmond the American International University in London.

Thingness: The Collection

Thingness 2013

Thingness 2013


What role does the ‘materiality of things’ play in our relationship to the objects we create and consume?

The above question was the starting point of the Thingness exhibition and symposium held in Camberwell College of Arts in 2011. Second in series, Thingness: The Collection presents a group of objects selected from the Camberwell Collection. Along with an accompanying series of workshops and talks, the exhibitionexplores the ‘affective’ potential of objects, as well as a range of approaches by artists and designers working in response to archives and collections.

The Camberwell Collection originates from a circulating collection assembled by London County Council and later Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) for educational purposes. The items in the collection were collected and circulated in schools between 1951 and 1976. The collection was acquired by Camberwell College of Arts in 1990 following the disbandment of ILEA.

Thingness: The Collection will begin with a selected group of objects. Invited artists and designers will respond to the characteristics of the objects; what they infer as their ‘presence’ in a materialist sense or ‘physiognomic appeal’, rather than its intended function. In this way, we hope to bring to light the space between the intended meaning of objects and where the projected meanings and narratives may begin to emerge.

Thingness: The Collection is facilitated by Karen Richmond (Course Director, BA 3D Design, Camberwell College of Arts) and Maiko Tsutsumi (Subject Leader, MA Designer Maker, Camberwell College of Arts), in collaboration with David Garnett (Conservation Technical Staff, Camberwell College of Arts).
