Wool Modern – The Campaign for Wool has announced the highlight of Wool Week 2011, launching an exhibition in September 8th -29th September at La Galleria Pall Mall in London. The exhibition will then also appear in Berlin, Sydney, New York, Tokyo and Shanghai. The exhibition focuses on the modern, innovative and avant garde use of wool throughout creative industries. The exhibition is set to break traditional perceptions of the wool fibre and create a new platform for wool in the 21st century.
The piece I will show in the exhibition is “Queens Chair” a green hand-knitted sculpture, that explores the space between body and object – the piece mirrors both a woman and a chaise lounge, says Isabel Berglund.
