Abstract

Textile artist Alice Kettle returns to Winchester Discovery Centre with a solo exhibition marking the 10 year anniversary of the public artwork ‘Looking Forwards to the Past, 2007’. This immense, multi-layered piece, caused a fundamental shift in practice for the artist. The retrospective exhibition represents to use of hand, machine and digital stitch, as a narrative medium, characterising textile as a descriptive language. The works are n the English canon of the medieval Opus Anglicanum, using densely stitched figural to depict contemporary event. Stitch is uniquely expanded to the a large scale format creating installation works which use textile as a material narrative tableau. The exhibition has been reviewed in Crafts and Embroidery magazine and was covered in the Guardian, Stitch MAgazine and Arts Quest and the Tatler. A monograph accompanies the exhibition.
