So, earlier this month I was looking forward to ‘Fracture’ opens at the Hoxton Arches. This is the second exhibition running this month that includes the work of @spottedhyenas, the other half of moderneccentrics. I wrote that with exhibits exploring subjects as wide ranging as the loss of biodiversity, beauty in imperfections, social relationships and memory, it promised to be an exciting show, and how right I was.
The private view was packed and indeed everyday the exhibition has been busy with all sorts of visitors – from textile students on college visits to inquisitive locals, and with such a variety of work, there really does seem to be something for everyone!
‘The exhibition promises a variety of stylistic interpretations and will encompass wall hung pieces, 3 dimensional sculptural work and exquisitely stitched pieces, reflecting the broadness of contemporary textile practice.’ PRISM
I have included some images from the Private View and some of my favourite pieces of work here on the blog, and as always you can see the full collection of images from the show here. I will add a little more information about the work later this week, so please have patience with me and look back in a few days…
Prism was founded by the late Julia Caprara, and the group has members from all over the globe. With the aims of exhibiting work of the highest quality, highlighting the breadth of textile practice and challenging notions of the textile as decorative and domestic, the group show annually in London.
The exhibition runs until the 12th of June, and if you can get to Hoxton (it’s really surprisingly easy) you will find it is well worth the effort.
