Textile Symposium/Six Degrees Exhibition

This weekend I'm flying down to the Victorian town of Wangaratta for a textile symposium, and the opening of an exhibition of work of mine at the Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre.

3 - 25 July 2010

Sydney artist Rodney Love presents two series of works that are based on double weave techniques and his conceptual ideas about groups and individuals - how they relate to one another, how one shapes the other, how they are connected.

Including the names of the people who donated the hair and socks to be woven, the works become a commemorative object, taking Rodney into his current research into memorials and monuments.

I'll be giving a presentation at the Symposium about my work, and how the links between my conceptual concerns, techniques and materials have made my work evolve the way it has.
