Jane Kidd: Curious
Textile Museum of Canada, 55 Centre Avenue
Saturday, June 2nd; 11am

Jane Kidd’s hand-woven tapestries are masterful technical and conceptual explorations. Interlacing threads by hand, without the assistance of mechanization, is time-consuming and ponderous, yet the directness and the freedom afforded by working this way allow Kidd to imbue the woven imagery with her energy and vitality. Her tapestries buzz with curiosity and urgency as she creates images that reference environmental manipulations: genetic modification of seeds, deforestation, hybridization. The exhibition invites reflection on real and imagined human engineering of the natural order.
Curious presents four recent series: Land Sentence (2009-2012), Curiosities (2013-2016), Wonderland (2014-2016), and Phenomena(2017-2018). The Phenomena series will make its debut at the Textile Museum of Canada.
