The Joke....
Two pieces of string walk into a bar and the bartender looks at them suspiciously. He says "Sorry, we don't serve string here." So dejected the pieces of string walk out. They're sitting in the gutter outside and feeling really thirsty when one piece of string says "Hey! I've got an idea to get me into the bar." So he starts twisting and turning, wriggling this way and that, pulling out a few threads here and there.Then the piece of string walks back into the bar. The bartender looks at him a little suspiciously again and says "Hey, aren't you that string that came in here before?" The piece of string replies "No,
I'm a frayed knot.

This exhibition is about reinvention and pushing the limits of what is possible with media such as sting. Using knitting, beading, embroidering, quilting, sculpting and painting etc, these artists blend traditional and otherwise common materials into distinctly unique objects. A major thread that ties this entire exhibition together is the fact that all of these artworks take an immense amount of time and energy to create. All of these artists are pushing the intended or physical limits of their chosen materials, and they are using these materials to communicate compelling, often personal, narratives.
