Introduction | 展覽介紹
In this exhibition, 21 artists from Southeast Asia and beyond, explore a wide range of artistic expression. Mnēmonikos means “remembering” in Greek. What unifies them is their enthusiasm for the tactile and dimensional possibilities inherent in cloth and fascination with the idea that cloth holds the memory of actions performed on it. Cloth can be animated by draping, crumpling, and folding; compressing, pleating, and tucking; staining, painting, and dyeing; cutting and tearing; sewing and embellishing. Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada has been invited as a guest curator in this exhibition.
21位來自東南亞及其它地區的藝術家，各自在織物上探索多種藝術表現形式。 Mnēmonikos源自希臘文，解作“記憶”。紡織品是記憶的載體，可通過立體裁剪、壓皺、折疊、壓縮、染色和縫紉等作出千變萬化的形態。藝術家們憑著對面料創作的熱情及觸覺，以追求織品內新領域的可能性。是次展覽邀請到Yoshiko Iwamoto Wada作為客席策展人。
