A COLLABORATION BETWEEN ARTISTS AND WEAVERS
Fibre Fables is the result of a successful collaboration between art, design and craft. It is the story of a relationship that the artists and weavers shared for almost a year. From knowing each other, to responding to collective aesthetics, the journey was marked with experimental concepts that were inspired by the age old tradition of weaving. The artworks in the exhibition are not art itself; they are also a voice that echoes craft. The works ubiquitously weave a visual fabric to communicate the many possibilities of liberal creative endeavour. They carry within, embedded memories that resonate an exchange of different disciplines and backgrounds. As the artists have learnt about various material forms and weaving techniques, the weavers have learnt to view their craft through the fresh perspective of art. Moving beyond boundaries, both have embraced a greater potential. And so the artist-weaver collaboration comes to reflect what two creative souls can achieve, when they drop all inhibitions and dissolve in the purity of conception.
