Exhibition: Textile Toolbox TEDs TEN

Just a very quick post & a few impressions from my visit to Chelsea School of Art (UAL). Although the research group emphasised that the exhibit was designed to feature online (and they’ve done a great job), I was keen to use the opportunity of their 24-hour pop-up exhibit in the grand ‘red room’ to see the textiles in flesh (and chat to folk, too). There were 10 stalls addressing each of the TED’s TEN and stunning examples they were, too. Melanie Bowles & Kathy Round’s interactive Smörgåsbord was visually compelling and added an element of fun. I particularly felt drawn to Clara Vuletich’s INNER/OUTER jacket, a piece that can evolve and grow in meaning and beauty over time (reminded me of Japanese Boro textiles). Its description stated the jacket to be a ‘comforting and protective companion’ on the journey to sustainability.
