Textiles breaking the barriers of technology, form and material.


On Arts Thursday 28 April 2022, Maisy Stapleton visited  the exhibition Pliable Planes, a major exhibition of experimental textiles and fibre practices by leading Australian practitioners at the UNSW galleries. Maisy interviewed Co Curator of the show, Catherine Woolley and artist Kate Scardifield, who worked with large scale sailcloth and parachute silk as well as video to explore the impact of landscape and climate on textiles in her work You Don’t Need Me To Tell You.

Pliable Planes looks to the use of unexpected new materials and processes, based on textile traditions.
