Event Details

Inspired by childhood memories of watching her mother weave in their home in Suzhou, China, Xiangmei Su’s exhibition Intangible Thread – Part 1, which opened last January 14th, uses the traditional medium of thread to create contemporary works that explore questions of identity, migration and modernity.

“My sixteen paintings and one installation showcase weaving as an important traditional craft that has dramatically changed over time and space in my hometown of Suzhou. This change is mirrored in the constantly shifting lives of people as a big wave of outward migration impacts Suzhou, and all of China. I, as one part of this migration, face the new challenges in a new country, and start questioning myself: who I am.”

Xiangmei Su will continue with Intangible Thread Part Two, premiering April 8th
