artist talk to be announced
INTERWOVEN is a visual and tactile exploration of the agentic quality of cloth as a representation of care, tactility, and temporality. How does cloth make us feel – both in terms of personal and collective memory and how do we experience cloth through touch? How is cloth interwoven into existence in ways that we are not aware? What happens when the tactility of cloth, as we know it, is altered or removed? How does this connect to other aspects of life that have been altered or removed? How can cloth represent the glitches and vulnerability of our current climate?
