Second Look: remade and reimagined textiles

Second Look: remade and reimagined textiles exhibition reflects on how handmade textiles are made, archived, used and re used by makers. Exhibitors have saved, stored and archived pieces they have made in the past and reworked them into ‘new’ artworks or have collected interesting textiles to repurpose them into ‘new’ artworks. Second Look: remade and reimagined textiles incudes stitched, pieced, collaged, recoloured and re woven textiles and exhibitors have used whatever technique they think appropriate to re-contextualising their textiles into new works. Both approaches create pieces full of memory with traces of use, history and a past life. All exhibitors value their materials, the hand made and in this exhibition are giving textiles a new life, a Second Look.
