Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop's New Group Show Explores the Profound Language of Hands

Opening June 29.

Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop has announced an exciting curatorial partnership between Director Stacie McCormick and Charlotte Leseberg Smith. Over the past couple of years, they have engaged in conversations driven by their shared commitment to championing and empowering artists through innovative models. Hence, it was only natural to feature Charlotte as a guest curator for her upcoming group exhibition.

“TAKE MY HAND” explores the profound language of hands, and how they communicate and connect, representing a range of emotions such as pain, pleasure, promise and prayer. Hands speak for what is left unspoken, offering a genuine glimpse into their owners’ innermost feelings. Leseberg Smith shared in a statement: “I became obsessed with hands, as portals of the body to the outside world, as things to give and take away and most importantly to hold, to grasp.”

She continued: “I think I really wanted something to hold on to. Looking at how artists unpick and illustrate hands, I wanted to look further as to how they were the artists’ symbol of communication in the work they were making. What could hands tell us that the rest could not? How do we hold and share things in our own hands that are precious to us.”

“TAKE MY HAND” will be on display at Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop from June 29 to July 29. Visitors will have the change to explore the work of Marie Obegi, Morag Caister, Lorena Levi, Olivia Strange, Grace Tobin, Penelope Kupfer and Iona Maria Sisea.
