Gladys Paulus @ Black Swan Arts, Frome

16 September 2017 - 14 October 2017

Textile artist Gladys Paulus presents HINTERLAND; an installation of ancestral healing costumes dealing with identity, belonging, gender relations and grief. She works predominantly in the medium of hand-made felt textiles that explores patterns of change and transformation.
Felt making is a long, physical and intimate process, during which wool fibres, water and soap are combined to transform into a fabric which can be shrunk into tactile forms. As the wool shrinks and dries, the shape is stored in the fibres. This idea of the wool ‘remembering’ provides the means to mark and process important events in her life and links her to an ancient textile tradition, which played a vital role in the history of humankind.
