Fibred Optics


June 24 - August 28, 2011

Curator: Andrea Fatona

Frances Dorsey, Jérôme Havre, Ed Pien and Michèle Provost incorporate natural and synthetic fibres, old and new technologies, as well as ideas and methods from the world of craft and contemporary art. Each artist uses fibre to produce and transmit individual and collective narratives that are at once coherent and fragmented, visible and invisible. Frances Dorsey’s large-scale, landscape-like works weave together personal memories and marginalized histories; Ed Pien’s installation transforms spectators into participants as they journey through its network; Jérôme Harvre’s toy-like, soft nylon mythical sculptures, reminiscent of aliens, reflect on ideas of synthesis and hybridity; Michèle Provost’s stitched works humorously convert writing from art magazines and curatorial texts into visual art.
