Using fibre as the allegory of the invisible hidden within, un:Seen is the fourth exhibition by Untethered Fibre Artists, with each exhibition title forming part of a poetic interconnected narrative. Evolving from the shared engagement with the three previous exhibition titles, the essence of the group exhibition are works that explore human interaction, impart a message and share a passion through imagery and meaning.
Referencing emotion, memory, private histories, and relationships between people, artists tell stories through cloth and stitch, felted wool, print and paint. For un:Seen, 20 artists interpret the title, making connections to their own bodies of work. Each artist offers the viewer insight into that which is hidden, intangible, fleeting and exposed to the gaze of the audience.
