Threads of Synergy Exhibition

Arts & Culture category

Arts & Culture category, La Motte, Wine Tourism

In a world where disembodied virtual experiences have become the order of the day, Threads of Synergy – a new exhibition of South African tapestry art in the La Motte Museum – encourages a tactile encounter and pays homage to the artisans’ presence in the process of making.

Threads of Synergy presents a selection of tapestries by the South African artists William Kentridge, Sam Nhlengethwa, Cecily Sash and Cecil Skotnes, all woven in the Stephens Tapestry Studio. These large-scale tapestries (some measuring three to four metres each) reveal the very essence of creative collaboration between artists, designers and weavers. Their co-created tapestries are eventually exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide. The exhibition is subsequently based on weaving as an art form – from spinning and dyeing the mohair, redrawing the artwork designs for tapestry and charting the colours, to the weaving process itself, as further explained here.
