Selected by Jay Oscerby and the Crafts Council, this project was developed for installation at Collect Open as part of Collect 2018 at the Saatchi Gallery.
This installation – inspired by the story ‘Ersilia’ in Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities – focuses on making invisible connections tangible. The work combines contrasting properties: two versus three dimensions, light versus shadow, reflective versus matt materials. It is created using a combination of weaving and lace-making constructed simultaneously on the loom.
