Exhibition Feltportation August 14th to September 12th 2013

Feltportation Exhibition
Wednesday 14 August – Thursday 12 September 2013

FCA Gallery at the Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong
Faculty of Creative Arts, Upstairs in Building 25 University of Wollongong
Gallery will be open Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm.
An exhibition curated by Anita Larkin of 13 contemporary artists, who use felt in conceptual artworks, bringing an ancient craft into a modern context. Feltportation explores how felt can be used as an insulation material, allowing the transference or interference, of objects, materials, sound, warmth, and of spirit.
Felt is a material that has been used in nomadic cultures across the Asiatic steppe for centuries, and has been instrumental in the flow of people across these lands. Feltportation provides a platform for an exchange of ideas about the use of felt as a medium for contemporary artmaking, and how profoundly it can speak about our humanity, and the transference of objects, words, sound, and energy between us all.
