An exploration of traditional handcraft and surface design through film and video by artists otherwise uninvolved with textiles. Ranging from the underground improvisations of Jack Smith to the educational approach of Charles and Ray Eames, these works blend the material presence of the image with the abstraction of repeated pattern and the ephemeral nature of touch.
Works shown included:
Charles and Ray Eames: "Textiles and Ornamental Arts of India," 1955
Jack Smith: "Scotch Tape," 1959/62
Yayoi Kusama / Jud Yalkut: "Kusama's Self Obliteration," 1967
Annabel Nicholson: "Slides," 1971
Joan Jonas/Richard Serra: "Veil," 1971
Stephen Beck: "Video Weavings," 1976
KNITTED LIGHT was curated by Sabrina Gschwandtner.
