Ainslie Murrayâ€™s An Architecture of Thread and Gesture is the last in the Japan Foundationâ€™s Facetnate! series of exhibitions and offers a new perspective on architecture and movement.
August 11th, 2008
Ainslie Murray, captivated by the movements of visiting Kyoto-based artist Machiko Agano, was inspired to create her exhibition, An Architecture of Thread and Gesture. Watching Agano assemble and disassemble her works, Murray recorded and documented the way she moved.
Using three-dimensional textiles, shadow and light to trace the movements of the human body through space, Murray aims to explore the connections between Japanese textile art and architectural space.
“As an architect turning to art to learn new ways of thinking about architectural space, the works speak not of themselves but of the processes through which they came into being,” Murray says. “For me, these works allude to occupation of space, the passage of bodies within the space, the fine handwork necessary to make the textile…”
An Architecture of Thread and Gesture is on display until 26th August 2008 at the Japan Foundation Gallery.
Gallery Hours: Mon – Fri, 11am – 4pm
Meet the Artist: Sat 16 Aug, 11am – 4pm
Venue: The Japan Foundation Gallery, Level 1 Chifley Plaza, 2 Chifley Square, Sydney
