Sharmistha Kar, What are the roots that clutch (2017), and Soft Shelter IV (2018). Part of ‘Next to a River - Embroidery as Map and Shelter’, on through to September 8 at McIntosh Gallery.

A closer look at a very special work in Sharmistha Kar’s ‘Next to a River - Embroidery as Map and Shelter’. .
McIntosh Gallery curator, Helen Gregory reflects on the artist’s invitation for the viewer to pull a thread from the work and take it with them, “I pulled it slowly, enjoyed the physical sensation of the thread popping from each stitch, and considered the labour that I was undoing.”
.
To participate in this gesture, be sure to visit the gallery yourself before the entire work has unravelled. The remainder of ‘Next to a River...’ and Joy Wong’s ‘skim’ will remain on view through to September 8 at McIntosh. 
#westernu #westernucreates
Pay us a visit for a closer look at Joy Wong’s exhibition ‘skim’. McIntosh Gallery is back to regular gallery hours, open from 10am-5pm each weekday and 12-4pm on Saturdays.
.
‘skim’ considers the dirt surrounding us, the inbetweenness of skin, boundaries, and thresholds, and what it means to have and be a body.
