David Gates in Make Hauser and Wirth Somerset (17 August -12 October 2019)

Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset is delighted to present David Gates: in dialogue, an exploration of containment, materiality, and the desire to collect, assemble, order and display.

David Gates (7-123) combines studio-furniture making with formal research, creating three-dimensional pieces inspired by cabinet furniture. This entirely new body of work includes geometric arrangements in the form of individual and groups of cabinets. This is part of a strategy of slowing down, of taking time to engage with a piece and explore the openings, niches, and drawers and the part they take in the overall form.

Collaborators include: Andrea Walsh, Derek Wilson, Helen Carnac (7-123), Harry Morgan, Ismini Samanidou, Katie Spragg, Mr Smith, Mark Reddy, Matthew Day Jackson, Neil Brownsword, Paul Adie, Romilly Saumarez Smith, Richard McVetis, Rosa Nguyen and James Shaw. Read more here
