holding space

The Holding Space exhibition at Espace Fibre will gather under-graduates (and a few recent graduates) from across Canada who work primarily with fibre. The April event is being coordinated by the Concordia Fibres Students Association. I’m so excited to be a part of it with this woven sculpture. I only wish I could go too!

With this piece I was re-visiting a double weave sculpture that I made for one of my final weavings at school. I wanted to use finer materials and create a bigger and yet more delicate structure that incorporates fluid boundaries, simultaneous interiors and exteriors through delicate balance and tension. Commonalities and breathing space are the result of this tension. It’s really meant to be experienced. To walk around it and see the compartments and how they relate to each other and support each other. How they are different and similar at the same time.
