Fabric is a resource which is created, worn, used and discarded in vast volumes every day. This exhibition includes sculpture, photography, painting and film by artists whose works utilise this abundant medium. The artists evolve fabric into new forms, exploit the capability of fabric to evoke memory and explore the fluid potential of fabric to drape, wrap, cover and mask.
This exhibition includes sculpture created with a variety of techniques including; sewing and joining new fabrics, shaping recycled and discarded fabric and clothing and textiles created by weaving or embroidering discarded material. Photographs, painting and film included in the exhibition document the shape-shifting qualities of fabric; the ability of fabric to enhance and decorate the body and to provide an armour or mask to transform.

Artists included: Katthy Cavaliere Christo, Mikala Dwyer, Michele Elliot, Anne Ferran, Lesley Goldacre Richard Goodwin, Anne Graham, Penny Harris, Geoff Harvey, Anita Johnson Larkin, Marine Ky (Artbank) Kerrie Lester, Kim Mahood, Robert Parr, Ian Pearson, Bernard Plossu, Elizabeth Powell, Joanne Saad, Kathy Temin, Leonie Watson, Jemima Wyman.
