Samantha Fields, Lady of Leisure, detail, 2016 (installation view)

Fiber Autopsy

A line is a one dimensional continuation of a serious of points, but string is a manifestation of a line with length, gauge and depth.

BRINK v2 artist Samantha Fields and artist/writer/educator Judith Leemann explore the tangibility of the sewn line versus a drawn line in craft and experience.

A discussion of gender and class acts as a lens for peering at the creation and acceptance of knitting, crocheting, weaving and embroidery within the art world and beyond.
