Title: Penelope's Labour - Weaving Words and Images
Author: Lowe, Adam ; Jerry Brotton
Price: $15.00    Original Price: $75.00

Description: texts by Jerry Brotton, Nello Forti Grazzini et al. Madrid: Factum Arte, 2011. 30cm., linen, 25pp. illus. text, plus foldout plates, loose as issued. English text. Exhibition held at Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice. Summary: The main idea of the exhibition is to highlight Vittorio Cini's great interest in the manual production of tapestry and at the same time explore developments in contemporary art and the renewed ability of artists to use the medium to tell very varied, compelling stories that address the warp and weft of our contemporary realities. Ranging from the late 15th-century tapestry depicting the siege of Jerusalem to Azra Aksamija's collective weaving on ethnic cleansing in Bosnia Herzegovina, Grayson Perry's vast allegory of contemporary life in the Walthamstow Tapestry and Mark Quinn's "flowers" of our manipulated natural world, this exhibition puts the woven image back at the heart of contemporary artistic practice. In addition to some of the finest late 15th-century tapestries in the Giorgio Cini Foundation collections, the exhibition will also include contemporary tapestries and other fabrics by artists such as: Azra Aksamija, Lara Baladi, Alighiero Boetti, Manuel Franquelo, Carlos Garaicoa, Craigie Horsfield, Simon Peers & Nicholas Godley, Grayson Perry and Marc Quinn.
