'Stitching Desire', 2021
Showing now at Peekaboo Gallery: ‘Preview Exhibition: Pulling Threads’ by Gotham Studios’ Mel Dare.
This exhibition is a preview of Mel Dare’s solo exhibition Pulling Threads at Gallery25, Edith Cowan University, Mount Lawley showing from the 27th August to the 16th September 2021. Curated by Sue Starcken.
Through her solo exhibition Pulling Threads the artist seeks to convey the intricacies of personal narrative. The artist explores the fabric of our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world. This body of work began in 2013 when the artist revisited her mother’s homeland Czech Republic. Dare asks: when we discover a loose thread do we unpick, resew, cut or pull gently to see where it leads?
‘Preview Exhibition: Pulling Threads’ showing at Peekaboo Gallery, 57 James Street, Northbridge until the 14th of August 2021.
