Luke Hart’s practice examines the way things in our world are put together: a dovetail joint, a musical instrument’s flight case, or a simple chair. Each a puzzle-solving situation reflecting the methods taken when solving each task. In Joinery, Hart’s first solo exhibition at Tim Sheward Projects, he toys with the familiar terminology for a carpenters’ workshop—a ‘joinery’—acknowledging the pragmatism behind engineering and design. He presents us with sets of what appear to be technical instruments encased in wooden beech boxes, such as 4-Part Linkage Joint (2013) and Curved Plate Joint (2013). Cared for and respected they could belong in a wood workshop and, although at rest, he is reminding us that these are functional problem solving tools; joinery being a place, but also a skill and action.
