Textile Sculptures – Solo Exhibition at Potchefstroom Main Gallery 2022. CLOSED
Below find the exhibition albums:
The gallery at ‘Die Hoofmuseum’ in Potchefstroom welcomes you to the eccentric and fantastical world of textile creatures that looks like they will come to life at night.
Multi-Disciplinary Artist Veronika Olivier brings her intricately sewn and constructed menagerie to the Gallery at ‘Die Hoofmuseum’ (cnr. Sol Plaatje & Wolmarans Street, Potchefstroom), in her first solo exhibition in South Africa, from 10 April – 31 May 2022.
More than 120 individual mixed media textile sculptures and art vessels showcase Veronika’s masterful combination and manipulation of up-cycled and new materials, from discarded fabrics, wire and wood, to paper, plastic packaging, tie-backs and rescued haberdashery. The self-taught artist has drawn inspiration from childhood memories, life experiences and creative genius to make these magnificent textile creatures and vessels.
The exhibition centres around the “Oh Whooters” (owls), “Oh Hares” (various species of rabbits) and “Quack-A-Lots” (runner ducks) inspired by memories and experiences in the artist’s life. A variety of sea animals, wildlife, oversized insects and flamboyant ostriches will welcome you with their witty expressions as you enter the gallery.
Veronika said: “I have always loved working with textiles. My grandmother taught me to sew at the age of five. Sculpting has always been my favourite art style and to be able to combine the two skills brings me happiness and joy. During the sculpting process when I see a character emerge, I start talking with them and they ‘talk’ back. I find out their stories and I imagine them to be alive. I believe that every animal I create is meant to be for someone specific and whether they find their new home in a week or a year, there always comes a point where I have to say goodbye. Most of my pieces use recycled materials, not only as an ethical statement, but I believe they add more authenticity and charm. What makes this so unique is that I use recycled clean waste like plastic bags, cellophane, cling wrap, tin foil and other materials that takes years to biodegrade and it is not visible to the eye, making the world’s most beautiful ‘waste bins’.”
