Ruup & Form is presenting Disobedient – an exploration of wearable sculptures at London Craft Week. Disobedient explores wearable sculptures with makers who are disobedient to their craft- by material, technique or presentation. These artists use their medium to address political, ecological and personal dialogues through works that would look good on you or displayed as art.
