In the Second Showing of our exhibition Fabrication: A Message Folded, Moulded and Stitched, we take an evolved body of work to the Johannesburg audience, with the team at Gallery 2 in Jan Smuts Avenue. Fellow curator, Laurel Holmes, and I were able to open this collection of contemplative and thoughtful pieces and engage with those who attended.
The work is once again made by eight women artists working in various media, borne out of a rich history of craft, but that have now moved to a place of acceptance as contemporary art.
A meditative thought travels from the artist’s brain, through their neural passages, their synapses, to the nerves that control their hands and what they do. So that each piece becomes their message, a concept intertwined with the fabrication of the piece.
