I felt very lucky to have caught the retrospective of Anni Albers work during my trip to London. I have been a big fan of her work for decades. To follow is some of the highlights abstracted from the show and the accompanying texts.
The show was a huge celebration of Albers' dedication and pioneering work as an Artist, within the history of abstract modernism, and within a story of textile art. It also coincides with the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus.
For me, this exhibition highlighted Albers' compassion and concerns between commercial design and craftsmanship. It showed me some powerful links between creativity and production, and the exploration of innovative materials and her consistent development of new techniques.
I want to do my best to simply walk you through each room in the show (11 in total). This is by no means an essay on my part, but just an overview, a bit of background of what I loved and learnt.
Hope you enjoy.
