Hanging By A Thread
Alex Busi / 3rd – 27th September 2021

This exhibition highlights the struggles faced by some of our most loved wild animals through the medium of embroidery. Many of our most recognisable species are hanging on by a thread due to environmental factors and human interaction. Embroidery has long been considered a ‘quaint’ pass-time craft but here it is shown as a contemporary art form, and so much more – the needle is the paintbrush, and the thread is the paint!
