Curated by the Art Gallery of NSW’s special exhibitions curator Jackie Dunn, the selected works explode the standard notion of textile art, challenging and expanding its potential as a medium to make connections, create dialogue, and speak of memory and identity.

Australian and international artists in the exhibition include John Barbour, Tracey Emin, Mavis Ganambarr, Anne Graham, Rubaba Haider, Mona Hatoum, Narelle Jubelin, Jonathan Monk, Raquel Ormella, Regina Pilawuk Wilson, Justin Trendall and Ronnie Van Hout (AGNSW collection) and Penny Evans, Dale Frank, Julie Gough, Amy Hammond, Lucy Irvine, Anita Larkin, Martha McDonald and Linda Lou Murphy (Tamworth collection).

COME TO ME WITHOUT A WORD
Wollongong Art Gallery 
www.wollongongcitygallery.com
Solo exhibition

Collected objects that have physically supported a human body can hold particular resonance within our psyche. Used chairs, ladders, crutches, or beds are oblique witnesses to absent lives and past events. There is presence within absence and absence within presence. The objects that I find come to me interrupted. They are unbelongings. Abandoned, broken or missing parts, they reside in a liminal state and are thus laid open to becoming something other, to being extended beyond their objecthood toward the Uncanny. Combining these interrupted objects with each other, with felt, beeswax, honey and lead, they open themselves up as intimate poetry. Larkin explores interrupted objects as a type of language, a tacit lingua that often bypasses the brain and finds itself a knowing within the gut and the heart; places where human love and loss are most deeply felt.
