Abstract or description

An international touring exhibition 'Bending the Line' by members of the 62 Group. I contributed to a range of work addressing of Contemporary issues around Textiles. The research focus of the exhibition relates closely to my own research practice in the sense that it tackles the notion of ‘bending’ traditional notions of textile art.

The exhibition venues included:
--the HUB National Centre for Craft and Design Lincoln
--Collins Gallery Manchester
--Museum Rijswijk. Rijswijk Netherlands

Fully illustrated catalogue available. http://www.62group.org.uk/exhibitions/bending-the-line/

Item Type: Show/Exhibition
Additional Information: "The Consumption of Utility" Designer Utility a consumers selling tag has become a dichotomy of purpose. Where Utility is a design statement to be displayed rather used. Promoted to be in line with the concept of make do and mend,in reality are a passing fashion to consumed. The work in the exhibition takes items of purpose and combines them to render them usless. Buckets ate lined with bristles while dustpans have bristles on their exterior and soap is given a bristle surface.
