press release

Knitwork is a life-long piece of work by Canadian artist Germaine Koh. Since 1992 Koh has been unravelling used garments and re-knitting the yarn into a single continuously growing object. Both sublime and resolutely absurd, excessive and banal, rigorous and formless, Knitwork is a practical test of the imagination. Forming a visual record of the passage of time and the expense of effort the work is also a monument to the massiveness of everyday labour. We are pleased to welcome Germaine Koh to Angel Row Gallery on the 18th, 19th and 20th October when she will be continuing to add to Knitwork. Come along between 12-5pm to watch her knit, and chat to her about the installation. Group and schools visits are welcome on these days, and activity packs will be available for teachers.

Knitwork, courtesy of Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto Knitwork is part of Fabrication, a season of exhibitions which explore the use of material in contemporary art.
