An exhibition of artists from Australia, Asia and the Pacific who examine the relationship between cloth and the body by using textiles in conjunction with the body or in performance. Cloth is embedded within our very being, like a second skin it records and traces our journey from birth till death. The body and ideas of embodiment are key conceptual concerns for many these artists who utilise or make reference to textiles in their practice.
