Mana Contemporar, NJ: Tectonic Threads - Samsýning

Sunnudaginn 11. september opnar sýningin Tectonic Threads in Mana Contemporary New Jersey.
Um er að ræða verk eftir 20 Listakonur frá Íslandi og New York sem allar eiga það sameiginlegt að vinna í textíl.
Sýningin er hluti af dagskrá New York Textilemonth.
Sýningar stjóri er Ragna Fróða og stendur sýingin til 24 september.

Um sýninguna:

Whether the artist is working in the bustling urban jungle of New York City or in the raw and intense landscape of Iceland, their need is the same: to tell the story of their human experience through their textile art. Textiles often have a utilitarian purpose, and one of the concepts of this show points to the role of textiles in overconsumption, fast fashion, and waste. Materials and raw materials that would otherwise become discarded become the clay, the paint, and the pencil. Textiles, one of the oldest mediums on earth, have a history that is complex and serves as a powerful reflection of time itself.
The dynamic of the city of New York is similar to the dynamic of the natural forces in Iceland: Strong weather, intense weather, and constant changes in short times. When one looks at the Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn, it is a similar awe-inspiring experience to peering at a mountain range in Iceland. Each interlacement, fold, and layer, tell a story, like the Icelandic landscape and the New York cityscape.
