In process: A textile story, by Tanu Vasu
Tanu Vasu explores the creation of hybrid forms which equate innovation with artisanal practice. Her work proposes altered realities of garments through arrangements of abstract textile formations, presenting an illusion of 'subversive sculpture'.
Her design practice is built as an exploration of the fragility of textiles and a cyclical reflection to resist definition. This revealed how the intersection of technology and clothing establishes a component of elusiveness through upending conventional notions of clothing.
This installation at The Canvas depicts her process of creation merging old world techniques and hybrid notions, showcasing an innovative range of textiles and clothing comprising of saori weaving, laser cut textiles, and sustainable fabrics as a series of engaging forms.
