Weaving And We—Hangzhou Triennial Of Fibre Art
Zhejiang Art Museum, China National Silk Museum, Museum Of China Academy Of Art, Hangzhou, China
Invited to exhibit at the second Hangzhou Triennial of Fibre Art, Lycia Trouton shared her textile and sculpture work here along with other international artists. This show was built on the themes of Needles & Proverbs, Body & Identity, Weaving & Form, Scene & Phenomenon. The Triennial served as a venue for discussion and dissection of textile, weaving and art on both a minute and a grand scale. On initial conception, this was the first meeting of Chinese audiences with modern fibre art, with artists from over 16 different countries sharing their work. The title of this Triennial—Weaving and We— married well with Trouton’s portfolio, that explores the use of raw materials, handwork and domestic and manual labour to create original structure and form.
