Convolution: A Woven Sculptural Installation with Anaheke Metua
Exhibition Dates: Sunday 6 July – 17 August 2014 at Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland
The Exhibition Convolution will feature the Woven Sculptures of Casselle Mountford and Anaheke Metua who are contemporary fibre artists. Each artist will explore traditional methods of weaving natural fibre and other materials to create Individual site specific Installations in the gallery.
This exhibition is a branch project of Lines in the Sand: Art in the Environment festival that takes place on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) each year in June. Both artists have been artists in residence during the Lines in the Sand Festivals, Casselle Mountford in 2009 and Anaheke Metua in 2011.
The artist’s individual Installations will share in and reflect the creative spirit and environmental sensitivity at the heart of Lines in the Sand Festival. This will be demonstrated through the experimental use of natural and found materials and in the largely ephemeral nature of the work. The artists will also source materials and draw inspiration from the unique natural environment of North Stradbroke island.
Casselle is conducting the fibre art workshop offered at the Point lookout Hall, Saturday June 28.
