More Crochet Art: Allyson Mitchell's Granny Square Wreck Roomcomments (6) January 2nd, 2009
Check out the colorful Granny Square Wreck Room by artist Allyson Mitchell. The entire space is covered with crocheted handiwork, providing us crocheters with an influx of eye candy (and maybe a bit of visual overload, not that I mind!). This piece was exhibited in 2006 at the Museum of Canadian Contemporary Art in Toronto(which has no official website). I wasn't able to find much information on the piece, but the artist describes her work as "melding feminism and pop culture to play with contemporary ideas about sexuality, autobiography, and the body, largely through the use of reclaimed textile and abandoned craft." Check out more photos of her work, all of which involves reclaimed craft, at her website.
