2018: Complexities & Cloth
- Toronto Design Offsite Festival + Artscape Youngplace; Toronto, ON
Complexities & Cloth looks at the detailed process involved in crafting woven textiles, while opening a dialogue with the fabrics of our time. Through the lens of hand weaving you are invited to take a closer look into the process of making cloth. Where each thread is calculated to bend over and under one another, creating the structural bonds that form our fabrics. Observing that within these bends of interwoven lines, lays the potential for delicate pattern work.
Let your eyes indulge in the elegant subtleties of hand woven cloth, while your mind considers the complexities of how it was made.
