|Tamara's Little House in Prairie
|Noahs Arc Wheres my Dearest
|Detail from Net
Our final Net, on the first day of March, comes from Tamara Jelača.
One of the most exciting aspects of Collect Connect is the contact we make with people all over the world. Today we have a wonderfully dynamic little sculpture from the Serbian Artist Tamara Jelača.
Tamara recently exhibited with us at the Fab Fridge Exhibition in Bath. A quick look at Tamara's recent group shows reveals that she is prolific and hard working artists with a specialism in embroidery.
'Embroidery for me is a kind of meditation. The process is slow, the drawing is showing up slowly. I love the fact that I can touch and feel the line. Each line gives me enough time to think and discover what the process itself means to me. Oddly enough, at the same time my embroidery is fast. It is a picture of my thoughts that develops slowly on a piece of fabric. Each finished piece is for me the revelation and tangible moment of my personal history'(http://www.tamarajelaca.com/artist-statement/#)
We placed 'Little House in Prairie' along the canal path at Mile End on a windy day. The threads hanging from Tamara's cloud whipped around in the breeze, each thread tracing a contour in the air to make an ever changing drawing of the wind.
Don't forget to have a look at the next Collect Connect project, 'The Art of Caring' exhibition at The Rose Theatre in Kingston-upon-Thames. The theme is Caring/Care and it is FREE to enter.
