Textures of Place I
Galeria Strefa Erasmusa, Strzemiński Academy of Art Łódź, 3 – 26 April 2017
‘Texture of Place’ is an exhibition of UK based artists Deborah Gardner and Andrea Thoma that explores juxtapositions of visual idioms to reflect on the immediacy and distance of place in view of material presence, projection, narrative and abstraction. Ideas of the local feature in both artists’ work and are also responding to the rich textile history of Lodz and Leeds. The exhibition responds to specific cultural contexts, spatial parameters (the exhibition space/s) and geo-political settings (Central Europe).
