remnants | Kira Alexanian

Showing from May 15th to May 22nd 2023


“In remnants, a series of organic fibre and wire works made with collected offcuts and waste are featured. Largely material-based, these works are the product of an urge to collect and reuse. By giving new life to remnants of yarn, thread and fabric, the cyclical nature of the environment is reflected. Wire offers structural support, while referencing branches, root systems, and nests. Rich colour, dynamic texture, and lavish strings of beads run throughout the tapestry works, mirroring the abundant offerings of nature. Intricate stitching and carefully wrapped wire and thread are crucial to this body of work, reinforcing a process-based method of art-making. I invite the viewer to look deep into remnants, find hidden meaning in its intricacies, and become immersed in its whimsical representations of the surrounding world.”
