Fabric Paintings presents a new series of works by Jacqueline Stojanović marking the artist’s first solo exhibition at Haydens in Melbourne.
Conceived in 2022 during a two-month residency at Lottozero Textile Laboratory in Prato, Italy, the exhibition interprets traditional western modes of display through the artist’s free association and foundational weaving practice.
The works in this exhibition are a group of diptychs and triptychs woven from a collection of Italian crossword puzzle patterns purchased from newsstands in Prato, with which Stojanović has interpreted as weaving drafts for her countermarch loom while in residence. Playing with the hierarchical histories of diptych and triptych painting, and the parameters of ‘general’ knowledge distributed through such national puzzle books, the ‘Fabric Paintings’ combine the artist’s handwoven cloth and industrial machine woven linens to mingle and find balance upon their stretchers; through their values in colour, form, production means, and technical history.
Opening Event: Saturday 27 May, 5 – 8pm.
