Installation of Limb by Limb by textile artist Sera Waters

Limb by Limb

22 Sep 2018 - 20 Oct 2018
Limb by Limb, an exhibition by Sera Waters at Art Collective WA.

Limb by Limb is an evolving textile-based installation by Sera Waters which explores how radical shifts in Australia’s ecology have occurred, hand by hand, limb by limb. Waters will create patterned woolly embroideries on-site which will be slowly added onto a seven metre long longstitched wallpaper. Together, the creations made by stitching, suturing, and re-constructing, suggest alternative historical narratives that embrace the entangled knottiness of shared pasts.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body

Also a heartfelt thank you to the team at Art Collective WA whose generosity, support and knowledge is astounding. Thank you.
