Continental drift opens next Friday 27 November 6-8pm

an installation by Lesley Giovanelli

Opening Friday 27 November 6-8pm

Open 11am - 5pm Friday - Sunday 28 November  - 13 December 

In her latest installation Giovanelli will suspend oversized bags throughout Articulate Project space.
These colourful patchwork bags or sacks are made from fabric, much of it collected directly from the makers during her travels in Yunnan, Laos and India. The traditional hand made Asian textiles are given a new reading by juxtaposing them with modern mass produced designs from Europe, Japan and Australia. The bags conjure associations with containers, wool sacks, shoulder bags etc. but are also strongly physical, corresponding to the body as they stretch taut or slump, fill with air or deflate.
