Biography in Cloth

This exhibition brings together work by 18 artists from near and far examining the idea and materiality of cloth.

Can we find the resonance of a person in cloth?

Can we connect to people and locations through cloth?

Can cloth reverberate with the presence, or absence, of us?

Often we see, or handle, cloth and remember forgotten connections, memories, traumas, even fantasies of who we might like to be.

Cloth is flexible - we are interested in putting together an exhibition which allows the space of cloth, and marks left on cloth, to investigate and refer to human experience.
