Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts

Luam Melake

New York, NY

Luam Melake’s practice is focused on mixed-media handwoven textiles and functional furniture. She is primarily concerned with exploring and exaggerating the interdisciplinary relationship between art, design, craft, architecture, and industrial production. Materials, methods and concepts are borrowed from each field to allude to their interconnected relationships. During her Bemis residency, she will focus on developing a new furniture series experimenting with a process of sculpting urethane upholstery foam and then coating it in layers of dyed rubber.
