Topologies, 2002 [Link]
> Anne Wilson lives and works in Chicago.
> Traditional textile techniques such as lace making, crochet and knitting
> are integral to her practice. Using these essentially homely activities,
> often associated with women, she applies them
> in unexpected ways to create powerful, complex and delicate forms.
> For the Topologies installation, Wilson and a team of assistants
> spent a week pinning into place thousands of tiny parts –
> webs of black lace, crocheted thread and netting –
> to form a topography or a large map-like drawing.
> In a similar play on scale, she uses animated film to bring loose threads
> and pins to life. Small insignificant things become movie stars.
> ‘In my art work the concept and content direct the use of material and process.
> I move from weaving, to sound, to glass,
> to video and collaborative practices very liberally,
> rather than being defined by a specific way of making.
> More constant is my interest in material histories
> and issues that come out of the everyday as they relate to our human condition.’
