ARTISTS [Exhibitions / Installations]

*Alison Harper, Bath Spa University From materialism to materiality the use and misuse of resurces, how can textile art an my textile contribute to an ethical dailogue through emerging materiality? Alison held a very interesting talk, that was not recorded unfurtunately. I did made photographs however and a tiny movie. Look here It was very interesting that Alison didnot add any extra energy accept her own labor into the process. She used only found materials.

*Lara Luna Bartley Materials-led artist and maker working primarily with found materials (forages, gathers and reuses everything from cardboard to pallets and wooden fruit boxes) https://www.a-n.co.uk/person/lara-luna-bartley/

Cardboard-making workshop, look here for an impression.

*Kuniko Maeda http://www.kuniko-maeda.com Kuniko studied traditional wood carving in Kyoto and following BA and MA degrees in textile design

at Chelsea College of Arts, she is currently studying for a MA Fine Art at Middlesex University. Her

interest in material lifecycle and sustainability resulted in the use of recycled paper, which then

became the leading concern of her studio practice: “by exploring the relationship between Japanese

philosophy and craft techniques I found a clue in how to re-evaluate the use of materials and explore

the underestimated beauty of everyday materials and waste”.
