SHAWNA WU TEXTILE & GARMENT ARTIST - PRESENTED ANTIANTI VIDEOVIDEO W LIVE PERFORMANCE BY SLODOWN

Shawna Wu Textile & Garment Artist - Presented Antianti Videovideo W Live Performance By Slodown

As part of Design Agency ANTIANTI studio's VIDEOVIDEO Series, Shawna Wu is presenting a live fashion installation and artist video, featuring handcrafted textiles and natural dyeing with Asian ingredients. 

Shawna Wu (b. Singapore) is a New York based Taiwanese artist who works sensuously with garments and textiles. "A dressing is for a wound..." - Her work explores the ways in which materials address our understandings of (and gaps in) intimacy, empathy and cultural nuance. Much of her practice draws influence from her Eastern-Western cultural hybridity to find ways to learn and innovate from ancient, alternative sources of knowledge and culture. In a similar vein, she is interested in sustainable practices in fashion and textiles, and her works are labors of love elevated through handweaving and handknit craftsmanship, reiterating the idea of a deliberate, thoughtful material consciousness.

Soul RnB singer SLODOWN will also be cohosting with a live performance and dropping the debut of his latest music video! Stop by to learn and share with one another! See you there!
