Emmanuel Babled / Lara Morrell. Ubuntu

Event organised by Emmanuel Babled / Lara Morrell

Ubuntu is an installation of a series of glass vessels by designer Emmanuel Babled and artist Lara Morrell, informed by their recent journey together in Africa.

The concept behind the installation is underpinned by African ethics of Ubuntu and holism in regards to nature.
A series of glass vessels are arranged above a platform of cracked red earth, they allude to the flora and fauna of Africa and the generative power of natural phenomena, whilst sealed vessels, elevated by locally sourced wooden structures, point to traditional African ceremonial wares, containers of secrets and metaphysical truths.

Emmanuel Babled (France, 1967) graduated in Industrial Design at the European Institute of Design in Milan and has been working for over 30 years in the creation of limited and exclusive series of pieces of furniture, accessories and other design objects - the Babled Editions. Lara Morrell (England, 1987), completed her BA in Turin at the European Institute of Design and her MA at Central Saint Martins, London. Her work has been exhibited, published and awarded prizes both in the UK and Italy.
