FIBRE @ no.10 : 1 February - 14 March 2020
Holmes à Court Gallery @ no.10 presents …
FIBRE is an unwrapping, unrolling and unfolding of fibre and textile artworks from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection, together with works from local artists.
FIBRE features stitched, threaded, strung, rubbed, ripped, folded and pressed fibre textile art. From luminous to opaque, delicate to robust, the works speak of processes of material manipulation. They present ritualistic gestures of folding and the repetition of stitching, rubbing and patterning. The natural world is a deep source of inspiration and its richness and fragility is conveyed alongside ideas about mortality, intimacy and cultural belonging.
FEATURED ARTISTS: Lindsay Mpetyane Bird, Tingapa Davies, Mark Dustin, Olga Cironis, Marjorie Coleman, Sujora Conrad, Carmela Corvaia, Angela Ferolla, Anisa Hirte, Jean Hoijo, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Eveline Kotai, Holly Story, Kate Thompson, Anne Walmsley, Lesley Parker, John Parkes, Sue Poggioli, Susan Roux, Nalda Searles, Helen Seiver, Curtis Taylor, Debra West.
