Soft Landing features work from artists Heidi Brickell, Vita Cochran, Finn Ferrier, Serene Hodgman, Fiona Jack, and Kathryn Tsui. The exhibition brings together a selection of artists who each engage with textiles on their own terms, incorporating material aspects into distinctly different modes of making. While their practices vary greatly, many of these artists share a similar engagement with narrative – real or imagined – and a preoccupation with re-addressing or re-presenting histories. Historically speaking, traditional textile arts have been somewhat maligned and dismissed as insubstantial, but it is perhaps this precise history that makes textiles today so engaging; their tactility and ostensibly quiet nature allows for the deft navigation of complex ideas, providing a soft landing for sometimes heavily political concepts.
