On Saturday, February 26 from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm, at MAWA, 611 Main St, Barb Hunt will present images of contemporary Canadian textile art, as well as examples from her own practice.
Barb's current work examines the devastation of war: she knits antipersonnel land mines and creates installations using camouflage from worn army uniforms.
In describing these and past bodies of work, she says, By giving value to the humble, the discarded and the hand-made, I hope to recover lost histories and encourage the re-consideration of traditional rituals within a contemporary context.
Barb Hunt currently lives and teaches in Newfoundland. She has exhibited her work across Canada and internationally.
