Jane Kidd: Curious

June 23, 2018 - August 26, 2018

Year 2018
Jane Kidd tapestry: Land Sentence Series: Arbour (2009)

About This Exhibition

Organized by Kelowna Art Gallery

Kidd is one of Canada’s preeminent artists working in textile. She lives in Salt Spring Island. The exhibition encompasses the tapestry series Curiosities, Wonderland, Land Sentence and Possession. In nightmarish visions of genetic modification, Curiosities depicts parts of various organisms spliced together to form alluring chimeras. The shaped weavings of Land Sentence are based on satellite photographs of environmental devastation, executed in the toxic palette of the computer screen. Kidd’s commitment to handwork in realizing these images of technology run amok is remarkably apt.

A catalogue with an essay by Amy Gogarty accompanies the exhibition, together with a sample tapestry fragment for tactile exploration.
