The judges agreed that Locus of the Dress is a visually arresting and intelligent artwork rooted in textile history and practice. Its excellence derives from an artistic and considered investigation of ‘the landscape of a dress’ and how this relates to ideas of perception, personal identity and control. A thoughtful and thought-provoking work.
The judges agreed that Daring Greatly demonstrates an unexpected feat of scale and technique in a way that challenges expectations of knitting and our relationship to it. The inclusion of the mediums of sound and aroma, as well as the artist’s intervention in the viewing process adds an intriguing dimension to the installation.
