People who have saved this event:


Curated by Gina Grassi. This is an exhibition which will explore the relationship and interconnectivity between sculpture and textiles, and how these two art forms often inform and infiltrate one another.


The exhibition will showcase the work of contemporary crafts people who experiment with sculptural qualities and the notion of three-dimensionality. These artists utilise techniques commonly found within ceramics and fabric / garment construction, such as layering, moulding, printing, stretching, folding and weaving. Furthermore, the works on display examine surface appearances and combine elements of different material properties. Tactile, decorative, suggestive, and through the inclusion of richly patterned and textural surfaces, these works appeal to the viewer through the sense of touch. They straddle and permeate the boundary between textiles and sculptural form.

Exhibitors include Emma Dickinson, Nora Fok, Nawal Gebreel, Jenny Llewellyn, Nuala O’Donovan & Sue Paraskeva.
