If I Were in San Francisco . . .

.
. . . this is the show I would go to see: Pip Culbert's deconstructed quilts and garments at Fouladi Projects, up through tomorrow. I first saw Culbert's work at the gallery's room at Aqua Art in Miami this past December. She was showing deconstructed shirts, and I was taken with both the concept and precision of the work.

Well dang. I just WAS in San Francisco and didn't know about this show. Looks interesting.

great concept

Takes away the functions (bed covering, traditional, conventional object). Leaves the signs and traces of work (mind work: the pattern and layout, hand work: the seams). Smart.

My first instinct was 'huh?' but then I looked again and started to really see these. Would love to have a irl look at them, Thanks for sharing with us.
