Fisher was selected to participate in the group exhibition, Craft Emergency, Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth by Joanne Bushnell (Director) Alma Daskalaki, Exhibition Projects Curator, Crafts Council, Dr Outi Remes, Director, New Ashgate Gallery.
Fisher presented ‘Homemade Devices’ an ongoing series of sculptural artifacts that are inspired by images of improvised explosive devices found whilst trawling the Internet. The works explore the formal inventiveness and provisionality of such objects, as well as their potent potential as representations of objects of threat and danger. Fisher investigates the subversive potential of the decorative through employing pattern and craft processes such as embroidery/stitch/ in the production of these sculptural objects.
Artists selected to participate in the exhibition were Chia Liang Lisa Kao, Angela Fung, Craig Fisher, Elizabeth Ashdown, Katy Jennings, Malene Hartmann Rasmussen, Olivia Walker, Paula Ortega, Sally Spinks, Kandy Diamond, Keith Varney, Luke Bishop and Lisa Pettibone.
