Ties That Bind At The Waters' Edge
Art exhibition. A collaborative film and textile installation by Sharon McElroy and Esperanza Perkins showing in Workshop 3.
Ties That Bind At The Waters’ Edge explores common elements found within domestic crochet and commercial fishing environments. The crocheted cotton yarn ‘nets’ and silent, rhythmic film piece investigates connections between community, site, shared histories and gender. The viewer is invited to observe closely the formal qualities of a working harbour and acknowledge its semi-industrial heritage.
