WSN Member, Elin Noble will be giving an artist’s talk on July 24th to mark the opening of her new show Vox Stellarum: An Installation of Silk Itajime Panels and Sculptures, at the Textile Center in Minneapolis, MN. Her show will be running July 25th-August 31, 2013.

“Award-winning artist, author, and teacher Elin Noble was inspired to create Vox Stellarum by the 18th century prints of German theologian Jakob Scheucher, who believed science and sacred scriptures were not mutually exclusive. For the series, Noble utilizes the itajime clamp-resist process of folding and clamping the silk organza, then selectively removing the sericin (silk gum). The result: an exquisite interplay between transparency and opaqueness, and a subtle shifting of moiré patterns when pieces are hung together and the cloth gently moves. ‘I seek to fill the room with the transformative qualities of cloth in space.’ -Elin Noble”
