Contemporary - Textiles

Fourteen Artist Group Show - Creature Comforts

Textile art today struggles to shake off its associations with sentimentality, domesticity and feminity. These cosy connotations, however, allow artists to direct their audience toward unexpected conceptual territory. Creature Comforts presents works by artists who subvert the assumptions about textiles, imbuing their work with strangeness, energy and intensity.

The works are made using a variety of techniques, from tapestry weaving to knitting and soft sculpture, amongst others. They touch on themes of the domestic and reinterpret the tradition of this time-consuming craft. What results from this subversive approach is surreal imagery, luscious landscapes and decidedly strange creatures.

Artists - Alice Kettle, Andia Newton, Elina Flyrin, Freddie Robins, Hamish Halley, Heidi Pearce, Karolina Dworska, Lara Salous, Liza Dickson, Lola Pedersen, Martin Maloney, Molly Kent, Sebastian Sochan & Woo Jin Joo.
