The Language of Textiles: Unravelling Ornament

An exhibition which responds to the visually sumptuous surfaces of Hadley's Orient Hotel.

About

The starting point for this exhibition is the interior décor of Hadley’s Orient Hotel– in particular, the elaborately decorated carpets, curtains, upholstery, cushion covers and wallpapers. Inspired by late Victorian designs, these interiors conjure up an ambience of luxury and exoticism, harkening back to the time when the hotel was first established as a destination for well-heeled and distinguished travellers from all over the world.

The artworks in this exhibition reflect on the nature and meanings of textiles interpreted in a metaphorical sense through drawing, sculpture, jewellery, photography and textile making.

Artists: Frances Watson, Janine Combes, Jane Slade, Julie Payne, Christl Berg,  Denise Rathbone, Chantale Delrue and Janelle Mendham, and Jan Dineen

Curated by Dr Llewellyn Negrin
