Interlacing Conversations at ICCA
This Sunday, August 30 Interlacing Conversations opens at the Inverness County Centre for the Arts in Nova Scotia. I am thrilled to be a part of this exhibition curated by Elizabeth Whalley featuring the work of, Joanna Close, Barb Hunt, Robyn Love and others. The opening reception is from 6 pm until 9 pm at ICCA. Everyone is welcome!
Interlacing Conversations has given me the opportunity to create Cast-offs with knitters in two provinces, and to share video and textile objects from Air over land, a project I started in 2011. In 2014 I exhibited the pieces on their own, but for this exhibition I wanted to try stitching them carefully to cotton forms for hanging.
It was an arduous task stitching each fragment of linen and wool to the cloth support. At the same time it was satisfying to handle each square inch of the textiles and marvel at how they were transformed by wind and weather.
Completed timelapse documentation of Air over land will be shown during Interlacing Conversations. If like me you are unable to attend the exhibition I have uploaded the complete video here.
