Textus-Texts-Textiles explores the relationship between textiles and texts, via textile bookworks by Lise Melhorn-Boe, supplemented by books as cultural texts and technological artifacts from the collections of W.D. Jordan Rare Books and Special Collections Library. Curators: Brendan Edwards and Ella Heiss.
Lise Melhorn-Boe has been excited about textiles for most of her life and has been making artist's books for over forty years. In her Sewing Poems series of books (fabric books using poems about sewing and needlework as text) she explores a variety of needle arts, including dressmaking, embroidery, knitting, petit point and quilt-making.
The exhibition is accompanied by an online exhibition and a catalogue, available on blurb.ca, at the gallery, or from the artist. (See pdf attached below.)
More information about the books on the artist's website.
