Best of Degree Show: Elena Mary Harris


Elena May Harris gets to know the places she lives in by situating her art practice in relation to the history of the city. She makes objects that reminisce to the familiar: the domestic. Harris works with communities and social groups as a way to build relationships through skill transfer and conversation and uses materials and processes rooted in craft to communicate with audiences on a level outside the art context. Harris aims to make beautiful objects that may not be explicit of a certain situation, but give an impression of the context they were made within.
