This week is the opening of Fils Croisés at Galeri LJ in Paris, the second group exhibition of contemporary textiles that I'm participating in (last weekend was the opening of Sur le Fil in Lille). Curated by Adeline Jeudy, this show includes works by Sandrine Pelletier, Jenny Hart, Céline Cléron, Birgit Dieker, Anne Geoffroy, Olivier Kosta-Théfaine, Valérie Newland et Yaze.
Galerie LJ, 12 rue Commines, Paris
opening: Thursday October 15 at 7pm
(show continues until the beginning of Nov.)
My mom is coming over for the opening! I'll have six works on display: three embroidered pieces and three drawings (like the portrait above). Last spring I began a series of portraits of high school classmates. Instead of doing any actual embroidery, I began drawing the stitches around the portraits for embellishment. A solo show of these portraits is slated for June 2010 at Domy Books in Austin.
Wish you could be here! But, you probably can more easily make it to Over and Under in Austin, which is happening next month!
