Its been a pretty hectic couple of weeks with a lot of travelling, in the UK, in Belgium and in Norway. Some fab workshops with some lovely people (more about that another time) and some really interesting projects and exhibitions happening or in planning.
I was really lucky to be invited to participate in the International Textile Biennial in Haacht, Belgium. There were 37 artists representing 14 countries and the standard was fantastic as well as being beautifully put together by Maurice and Danielle.
I took along my series of Phrenology Heads. It’s the first time that all 8 have shown in the same exhibit. There they are travelling to Belgium from the UK in their ‘special’ bag stitched together from extra large TKMaxx shoppers! (All very glamorous!). The next photo shows two of the heads (Eat the Rich and Little Girls) waiting at the exhibition hall to be set up.
Den Breugal in Haacht is a brilliant space. The exhibition is spread across 3 floors.
We stayed at the Chateau de Namur overnight. It’s a fantastic hotel overlooking the old city of Namur. It looks quite swanky but it’s actually a training centre for the hospitality industry in Belgium. I had one of the best vegetarian meals ever!
The Textile Biennial finishes tomorrow (12th March) For anyone in the area it’s open from 10am until 6pm.
