Threads : Contemporary Embroidery Art, Paperback / softback Book

Threads : Contemporary Embroidery Art Paperback / softback

Description

Showcasing over 80 international artists who incorporate embroidery into their practice, this book provides a survey of embroidery in contemporary art, illustrating the huge range of ways in which the craft has been embraced as a form of creative expression.

Some artists evoke a kind of nostalgia, rediscovering skills that have fallen from fashion or promoting the value of ancient handicrafts in an industrialized world of mass-production.

Others push boundaries by using embroidery on photographs, poetic installations, embroidered reproductions of everyday objects, or by using it to tackle political, personal or transgressive themes.

Threads is a captivating exploration of their creative journeys, their influences, the technical challenges they face and the message they wish to convey
