Green Asylum is a large-scale experimental textile and video installation that blurs the boundaries between tapestry weaving and architecture, landscape and language by multi-disciplinary creative Charlotte Haywood.
Haywood’s architectural tapestry and video works tell stories within the Australian landscape seeking narrative and language from the past-present-and-future. Her work is influenced by ephemeral, temporary and sacred shelters, specifically the structures of Indigenous Australia, Asia, Euro-centric steeples and refugee tents from which she creates multi-threaded and multi-narrative architectural forms.
Green Asylum will open on the 17th August, 6 – 8pm.
Opening night speaker:
Professor Jennifer L. Biddle, Director Visual Anthropology & Visual Culture
National Institute for Experimental Art (NIEA), UNSW Art & Design
