Lucy Irvine: Made of Holes

Obelisk-esque sculptural work for Dark Mofo 2016.

About

Woven from cable ties and irrigation tubing, this stand alone, conceptual work grapples with the relationship between complex thinking and the unknown. The unknown: how do we engage with it, move through it, trust it even? How do we deal with the holes in our knowledge, are these voids of possibility?

Featured as a Dark Mofo satellite exhibitor, Lucy Irvine is a Canberra-based artist and educator.  Her work engages with sculptural, textile and spatial discourses through the weaving of emergent organic forms from industrially produced, utilitarian materials. Shortlisted for a major public art commission in Melbourne’s Docklands (2014) and featured as a finalist, as part of a cross-disciplinary collaboration, in the 2015 Tapestry Design Prize for Architects, her practice is extending its reach into architecture and public space.
