The bed is a powerful locale in our daily life – with most of us beginning and ending our day here. We experience our most intimate moments of vulnerability, love, passion, sadness, and weakness here. Most of us begin and end our life in this place that is piled with soft sheets and pillows. As a metaphor we can experience all the most significant emotions of human life in this one simple place of our daily life. This exhibit is work that explores this liminal space with contemporary fiber practices.
It looks like a wonderful exhibit from the photos. The gallery, filled with pieces that literally reach off the walls and into the viewer’s space invite interaction and consideration. It’s like a textile wonderland waiting to be explored. I have one piece, The Other Woman, in the show. I had hoped to travel to Lawrence to see the show in person, but alas, it’s not in the cards.
I encourage anyone who IS within a reasonable distance to make the excursion. Or if you can’t make it there, maybe like me, you’ll want to purchase the catalog here.
