Textiles part two

Here are some more images from the exhibition currently on show at the Butter Factory Studios till 13th June. The works were created entirely by Denmark artists and community. They are the result of the community performance project Solace + Yearning: Between Kwoorabup and Denmark which was performed along the Kwoorabup/Denmark River back in March. The project explored a shared longing to connect to the natural world and the complexities of our shared histories since colonisation.
