To Give Oneself Work is the reedition of a performance realized by Juliette Roche last year at the Glasgow School of Art. Over many days, from morning until evening, the Parisian artist, born in 1987, occupies a space accessible to the public, organized like an atelier. She works there with wood and various materials towards a final exhibition which will conclude the performance.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
