Exhibition Opening: Thursday 6 September, 6pm – 9pm.
Print and mixed media exhibition.
Belfast Print Workshop welcomes you to the opening of ‘Interwoven’ at the Cotton Court Gallery on September 6th (6pm – 9pm), part of Late Night Art Belfast. This mixed media exhibition by three BPW artist-members Anushiya Sundaralingam, Raquel Amat and Majella Clancy is part of the Linen Biennale NI and will re-think linen as a raw material as well as its social connotations.
Three women artists from Sri Lanka, Spain and Ireland explore linen; its historical significance in Northern Ireland as well as its links to wealth, purity and hierarchical status. Interested in how linen is worn, folded, dyed, and reused, the exhibition will include interpretations of flax production and linen thread as line as well as exploring the domestic connotations of linen usage. The artists are interested in the way in which ideas from the linen industry and printmaking can work together to reflect the intricate nature of the material and its far reaching influences. Works on show will include a variety of print techniques, textiles, ceramics and works on hand-made linen-paper.
Exhibition continues until September 28th. Opening times vary.
