FIBRE travels South for a further unwrapping, unrolling and unfolding of fibre artworks from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection, together with works from local artists.

FIBRE features stitched, threaded, strung, rubbed, ripped, folded and pressed Fibre art. From luminous to opaque, delicate to robust, the works speak of processes of material manipulation and ritualistic gestures of repetitive stitching and rubbing. Everyday clothing is stitched and sculpted anew; forms of nature are enveloped; objects are crafted of fibrous textures of bark and grasses; human hair is shaped and strung together and; native flora and fauna are pictured and sculpted of and on fibres, or have fibres running through them.
