Tamworth Regional Gallery
A partnership between the Art Gallery of NSW and Tamworth Regional Gallery, 'Exploded Textiles' was initiated to celebrate Tamworth Regional Gallery’s 100-year anniversary. Curated by the Art Gallery of NSW’s special exhibitions curator Jackie Dunn, the selected works explode the standard notion of textile art, challenging and expanding its potential as a medium to make connections, create dialogue, and speak of memory and identity.
Australian and international artists in the exhibition include John Barbour, Tracey Emin, Mavis Ganambarr, Anne Graham, Rubaba Haider, Mona Hatoum, Narelle Jubelin, Jonathan Monk, Raquel Ormella, Regina Pilawuk Wilson, Justin Trendall and Ronnie Van Hout (AGNSW collection) and Penny Evans, Dale Frank, Julie Gough, Amy Hammond, Lucy Irvine, Anita Larkin, Martha McDonald and Linda Lou Murphy (Tamworth collection).

Anita Larkin combines salvaged objects with felt, beeswax, honey and lead in engaging artworks that offer themselves up as intimate poetry describing love, longing and loss. Chairs, ladders, crutches, hot-water bottles, violins and beds, can be seen to stretch, slump, climb, smell of cloves, wrap themselves in the warmth of felt or emit the sound of bees.
