Bita Ghezelayagh @ Aga Khan Centre Gallery
27 February 2020 - 3 May 2020
Rethreading and Retracing is an exhibition by Bita Ghezelayagh, which gives us a glimpse into her practice that is influenced by her Iranian cultural heritage. She transforms old woven textiles and eastern carpets into new pictorial objects and works of art, by using traditional embroidery techniques along with found materials to transform disused textiles, giving them a renewed sense of life and an altogether, different purpose.
This exhibition includes a new Off Cut series revealing deconstructed forms that resemble templates for body armour that may have been used in the past.
