Description:

'Textile Transporter' is an artist-initiated and textile-based exhibition project between England/Germany and Berlin curated by Renata Brink and Caryn Simonson.

The show is stimulating new work on the theme of transporting textiles either conceptually and/or literally by inviting artists to submit works on themes that might arise out of this title....'Textile Transporter' showed some contemporary works in 2007 and positioned this primal material into the centre of discourse and discussion....'Textile Transporter' makes reference to the inherent qualities of textiles such as lightness and pliability: something very small may be unfolded into something quite space consuming; textiles as a material full of historical and contemporary references - enabling travel between time, space and place; 'messy' in a Freudian sense, ephemeral and gendered. Textile transporter' also plays on the gallery's name art-transponder. - Renata Brink, arttransponder Jahresbericht, 07, p. 27
