exhibition opening

Commons – the rhythm of a walk – June 9th – 26th – Contemporary Applied Arts gallery

Wednesday – Friday 11pm – 5pm, Saturday 11pm – 4pm

A collection of woven pieces celebrating the eight remaining pieces of common land in Hackney. My starting point has been the audio recordings I made of the walks. From these sound waves I’ve derived pattern and rhythm which I’ve woven into the cloth, so placing these journeys in the very structure of the fabric.

The exhibition interprets both the sound recordings of the walks and also celebrates the topology of the shapes and boundaries of each of the common spaces. Red is threaded through many of these pieces, woven and stitched taking the yarn on a journey through the cloth. It is the colour of life and death and used as protection on journeys.
