About the exhibition

These works have evolved through a sustained exploration of the materiality of textile and digital mediums. The notions of impermanence, contingency and the fragility of our natural environment are addressed using mediums that are similarly framed. Aesthetics and conceptual concerns are integrated using traditional feminine aesthetic expressions termed "women's work". The repositioning of textiles within a paradigm of feminist critical engagement is pivotal to the ecological issues addressed. "Women's work" is used as a metaphoric means to "mend the world".
