Meliors Simms: Extraction

08 June 2012 - 01 August 2012

Embroidery was traditionally considered to be an essential accomplishment for all ladies: an occupation of model domesticity to while away the interior hours, perhaps working on a trousseau or household linen. Meliors Simms' installation "Extraction" presents a selection of hand stitched works - made reusing old domestic textiles - that do not consider household affairs, but instead are preoccupied with pollution and environmental harm. Simms examines the consequences of our consumption on a global level, working to an interior rather than landscape scale and repurposing familiar domestic materials salvaged from domestic discards or secondhand shops.

20 April 2012 - 06 June 2012

Jill Studd's evocation of some of the most challenging contemporary global issues presented through the domestic medium of knitting wool is charged by a particular appreciation for the prosaic. This installation of evocatively titled "knittings" - Unembedded, Green Cuisine and the Proletarian Plates - eschews any of the domestic vestiges that might be associated with knitting or wool, rather occupying the realm of political or protest art.
