Locating The Precious – 25 – 31 August 2019
Lin Cheung was invited to give a workshop at Boisbuchet. ‘Locating The Precious’ invited participants to freely explore ideas concerning preciousness and where that might be located by responding to the immediate environment and using readily available materials.
For over 25 years, CIRECA (Centre International de Recherche et d’Education Culturelle et Agricole), the non-profit organisation running Boisbuchet’s program, organises interdisciplinary workshops. Participants from all over the world live and work here together with noted designers, architects, and artists – not to come up with perfect results, but to gain insights into the creative process and the challenges involved.

A picture of the prize winners

Maison/0 is an incubator of sustainable intelligence designed to provoke practices and challenge our collective futures.

Set up as part of the CSM LVMH partnership launched in May 2017, Maison/0 provides a platform to develop innovative sustainable projects across Central Saint Martins and LVMH. Leading the initiative in both local and global contexts, Professor Carole Collet is the inaugural CSM LVMH Director of Sustainable Innovation.

Matilde Mozzanega, our graduate this year at BA Jewellery Design is one of the winners of this exciting prize. Matilde transforms a man-made material into an organic form. In a kind of reversed alchemy that uses resin, her work creates a state-change; the end-product is an entirely new substance. Pitting nature against machine, she hardens paper so that it feels like rock yet looks like driftwood.
