CONCEPTUAL CROCHET - The Cross Art Projects, 33 Roslyn Street, Kings Cross - 12 November-4 December 2004

'Conceptual Crochet' was curated by Christopher Dean at the Cross Art Projects - a space run by Jo Holder.  The show included the work of John Aslanidis, Elizabeth Day, Christopher Dean, Judith Duquemin, Fiona MacDonald, Helen Nicholson, Elizabeth Pulie, Jacqueline Rose, Justin Trendall, Shaun Weston and myself. 

It was subtitled, with Christopher's characteristic wit, 'Between the Concept and the Crochet' and asked the question - "Why has the craft of weaving become central to the work of so many contemporary artists?"  My work was a large cube constructed from cardboard and paper, where coloured paper strips were woven together to cover the surface of the cube.  I have included a copy of Christopher's essay that accompanied the exhibition.
