A collection of strange creatures and peculiar experiences

Strange Creatures

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

Exhibition runs: 19th October – 24th October

Centrespace Gallery, 6 Leonard Lane, Bristol. Open Monday – Saturday, 11am – 5pm
