Leah Kudel: The Spaces Between
EDMONTON - ALBERTA CRAFT DISCOVERY GALLERY
January 18 - February 29, 2020
Leah Kudel, Edmonton The Spaces Between is an exhibition about the absent spaces that surround us in life. They are spaces that make us feel something. They bring us together, make us question our lives, fill us with curiosity, and help us grieve after loss. This exhibition is an intersection between hand-blown glass, photography, video, and interactive art, blurring the lines between fine craft and contemporary art.
Leah has a strong dedication and passion for glass and is the recipient of multiple project grants and scholarships. She was recently awarded a Bonhams Prize special jury commendation during the 2019 Venice Glass week for her large-scale sculpture created through the Autonoma Factory with five other artists from across the globe. She was also a contestant on the Netflix series Blown Away: Season 1, a high stakes glassblowing competition. Outside of television, her creations have been included in exhibitions in Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the United Kingdom, the USA, Italy, and New Zealand.
