FIBRE is an unwrapping, unrolling and unfolding of fibre and textile 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 textile art. From luminous to opaque, delicate to robust, the works speak of processes of material manipulation and ritualistic gestures of folding and the repetition of stitching, rubbing and patterning. FIBRE considers the personal intimacy, as well as the universal meanings of soft materials and their richness as contemporary artistic media.

Everyday clothing and blankets are dyed, stitched and sculpted anew; forms of nature are enveloped in matted, compressed and dyed felt; 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 with or on fibres.

FEATURED ARTISTS: Lindsay Mpetyane Bird, Tingapa Davies, Mark Dustin, Olga Cironis, Marjorie Coleman, Sujora Conrad, Carmela Corvaia, Angela Ferolla, Anisa Hirte, Jean Hoijo, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Eveline Kotai, Holly Story, Kate Thompson, Anne Walmsley, Lesley Parker, John Parkes, Sue Poggioli, Susan Roux, Nalda Searles, Helen Seiver, Curtis Taylor, Debra West.
