“Working primarily with fabric, paper, and cardboard, I develop processes that exploit the affordances and limitations of media to create objects that explore themes of the absurd, grotesque, and uncanny. These objects press against the sticky, black film that coats our memories, grimacing through their restraints, seeking a connection.”

Curated by Helena Frei & Chris Mitchell, Hard Twist 10 Memory winds its way through textiles, a constant thread that runs through the earliest archaeological fragments, the latest experimental synthetics and everything in between. Textiles hold memory, recall memory, record – and occasionally obscure – memory. In some recent incarnations they even have memory. Opening reception on September 10th 7-10pm on the 3rd and 4th floors galleries. On view August 27, 2015 to December 27, 2015 on the 3rd and 4th floors of the hotel.
