Out of the Ordinary
V&A Publications
2007


This book is a catalogue for the Out of The Ordinary exhibition at the V&A. It explores the work of a group of international artists who place craft at the heart of their practice, transforming everyday subjects and ordinary materials into works that are out of the ordinary.

The book features, among others, the ephemeral ice-and-chocolate jewellery of Naomi Filmer; the almost-hidden installations by Yoshihiro Suda; thread and lace-work by Anne Wilson; and found metal sculptures by Olu Amoda. These innovative artists show that craft is a fundamental concern across many disciplines, and this redirection of materials and  traditional techniques, and their use of scale, achieves extraordinary outcomes.

In addition to interviews with each artist,  essays by a diverse spread of writers  contextualise their work. Specially commissioned photographs and illustrations  give a behind-the-scenes view of the making of these extraordinary artworks.
