Fibre an Form

Fibre an Form

UH Arts and St Albans Museum + Gallery are delighted to present ‘Fibre and Form’ - the first major exhibition of sculptural textile work by acclaimed artist Anna Ray.

‘Fibre and Form’ will focus on large-scale sculptural pieces created over the past 20  years. It will feature two newly commissioned sculptures entitled Mesh and Rosette, which have been fabricated during lockdown with funding from Arts Council England, and Ray’s seminal wall piece Margate Knot, originally produced for the exhibition ‘Entangled: Threads & Making’, Turner Contemporary (2017).

Ray offers an artistic practice that is highly accessible and appealing to the public, while also pioneering within the field of art textiles and soft sculpture. She sees herself and the actions of her body as part of the work; building and dismantling component parts becomes a form of performance.
