Weaving Lines

Susan Mowatt (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Weaving Lines is a work which began in 2011.
It is a series of lines woven horizontally across a space on two warps using a separate colour for each line. Each line starts at one side of the space, at various heights and stretches out to the opposite side, some going from right to left and others going from left to right.
Some of the lines look complete and others have thread hanging from them, suggesting that they are midway, but it is unclear in which direction they are moving. At various stages I perform in the space either weaving or un-weaving one line, wearing knitted socks in the same colour of yarn.
In this work I explore themes of slowness, materiality, non-permanence, mindfulness and making.
This work was formed the main part of the solo exhibition Weaving Home, GalleryGallery, Kyoto, Japan in February 2012.
