Meta Textiles: Sewing the Second Skin
29 Mar 1996 – 26 May 1996
Naoko Furue. Momi 1991. Pieced and smocked kimono linings, 200 x 150 cm.
In Meta Textiles, Curatorial Assistant Gary Markle brought together selected works by Naoko Furue and Gillian Collyer (both of Halifax), Neil MacInnis (Chicago) and Patrick Traer (Saskatoon).
These artists engaged the notion of "second skin" from disparate perspectives, though a spare, minimal sensibility linked their approaches to textile media. The strikingly elegant installation was enlivened by a number of intensive artists talks, and was well attended by individuals and groups.
