This edition by Hannah Lees was produced in connection with London Cru. The bottle contains London Cru's 2013 Syrah wine and the clay base has been infused with wine lees, the name given to the sediment or spent yeast from the wine-making process, as well as being the artist's family name.
Certain Things Flow and Others Are Excluded
Bottle of wine, Clay, Wine lees.
Edition 20 (with 5 Artist Proofs)
Hannah Lees (b. 1983) work investigates ideas of the cycles of constancy and mortality; the sense that things come to an end and the potential for new beginnings. This constancy, be it in religion or in organic matter, is visible in her practice through her attempts to make sense of and recognise traces of life. Her work focuses towards an understanding of the essential nature of the materials she uses. Lees completed a
Post-graduate Diploma at Chelsea College of Art, London (2011) and a foundry residency at the Royal College of Art, London (2012).
London Cru follows in London’s fine wine tradition of trade, innovation and eccentricity to bring wine-making to the heart of the capital. All our grapes are hand selected to showcase vineyards from Europe and the UK and are carefully delivered to London where they are nurtured into great wine. All our wines are made in small batches: 600 cases at most and sometimes as few as 80. Visit www.londoncru.co.uk for more information.
