Embedded is a Textile Art Show, co-curated by myself and Maddie Gifford. The selected Artists are all unique in the way they manipulate textiles in their art and design practise.
The show is contemporary and edgy and definitely surprising.
I am currently busy making my pieces for Embedded. Some of you know my background as a Textile Arts grad from Goldsmiths University of London back in 1996. Feels like a million years ago now, so much has happened in my life since!
It has been quite a journey creating new work for an exhibition, a process which has allowed me to touch upon the concepts and research I undertook while I was at Goldsmiths and that still seem so relevant today.
I will be posting images of the show for those who can't make it, so come back soon. x
Here is a bit of blurb about the exhibition:
From the time we are born, we are all embedded in cloth. So too are our personal memories embedded in the clothing, fabrics and textiles that we interact with throughout our lives. This group textile exhibition features an array of female artists who all explore the relationship between textiles and the different memories we each fold into them individually and as a wider society.
Through texture, colour, pattern and tactility, the artists in this exhibition push the boundaries of our usual interactions with textiles in everyday life.
