strung out and undone
World of Threads Festival 2014
October 25 - November 30, 2014
strung out and undone is a culminating exhibition of artworks submitted to the 2014 International World of Threads Festival and selected for display at the Living Arts Centre Gallery. The works chosen challenge the customary framework of textile and fibre based arts by introducing diverse contemporary approaches that collectively re-define the medium. This exhibition deconstructs traditional practices through a combination of materials, an integration of mixed methodologies and a re-purposing of conventional techniques. Selected artists fuse the pleasure of fibre based practice with the desire for sensory experience, playful anecdotes, contemplative forms and curious environments. Uncertain and obscure, untamed and stressed, strung out and undone sets new rules, subverting past expectations and sprawling in new directions.
