To coincide with Flat Earth Society, the Project Space presents Lilium Burrow, whose process-based practice applies contemporary, cyclical methods of construction and deconstruction to fabric and other materials. Silk and Bedsheets is an exhibition of textiles and prints that investigate moments where the desire to hand-make contends with new technologies.
Through analogue and digital processes, Burrow deconstructs and transforms fabrics into a desktop friendly, A4 scale. Further manipulation highlights specific aspects of each fabric; texture, colour, sheen, softness, hardness or drape. As a final step, materials and files are sewn, digitally and physically, back to their original scale, producing deceptive and ambiguous works that blur the line between the original, the copy, the edited and unedited.
This project was assisted by a grant from Create NSW, an agency of the New South Wales Government and supported by the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian State and Territory Governments. The program is administered by the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA)
