Travels in MongoliaLouise Martin and Jane Brunning
13th April - 26th May 2013
In September 2010 we returned from an independent study trip to Mongolia, travelling through the Gobi Desert, visiting and living like nomads. Sketchbooks, felt rugs, Kadzh embroideries, Buddhist trinkets, camel wool, stones, china, bones and the prevailing smell of yak dung journeyed homeward. Our woven Mongolian stories are inspired by these documented memories, found objects and antique artefacts.
Having experienced the same journey we worked independently, challenging and developing our individual working styles. Our final body of work is united by our Mongolian journey and celebrates the diversity of our individual creativity. The exhibition includes contemporary woven tapestries, embroideries, drawings, felt and stitch.
