People who have saved this event:


Alison Baxter and Mona Craven are both exhibiting textile art exploring in-between worlds.


Alison explores a duality between jewellery and textile art through solidity and fragility.

Mona connects past and present through the everyday cloth. Both use the familiar materials of thread, cloth and paper to create crafted installations that connect time, space and materiality.

Alison is questioning the transformation of an artwork when either worn or presented as an installation. The materials she employs capture and contain the impermanent, to reveal minute details that are overlooked and undervalued.

Mona is inspired by a love of beauty in the battered and worn cloth that connects across the decades of a colonial and postcolonial past. She is unravelling and unpicking, stitch by stitch, to reveal the stories they hold.

Locating this exhibition in the Victoria Institute, a space that is between past and present, provides a platform to show work on the threshold, ‘in-between’. Where historical decay breaks ground in making new cultural meaning visible.
