Strange Creatures, 2012, Wool, dimensions variable
My first solo show outside of Australia is happening really soon!
Cosy is an exhibition about love, obsession, the body and knitting. It explores that compulsion to cocoon loved ones in hand made, lopsided jumpers, to wrap someone or something up, to keep it warm and safe even to the point that it can no longer escape or breathe. It explores human interactions, the space between bodies, touch and the sensation of not quite touching. The works play with our ability to perceive the world around us and the people around us. “Cosy” comprises of a series of knitted costumes and installations, and the viewer is invited to interact with the artworks and “inhabit” the costumes.
Opening drinks: Friday 19th October, 2012, 7pm
