melanie monoceros - Whispers in the Weft
Presented by Mantioba Craft Council in partnership with MAWA and the Manitoba Fibre Festival
Informed by an intentionally multi- and inter-disciplinary artistic practice, melannie monoceros will stitch parallels between the work of weaving and that of memoir writing. Approaches to narrative, can, as melannie will share, be influenced by the choreography of weaving: the let off, the take up, the chain, the choke, the cross. Offering insight into their exploration of grief and the body, melannie will bring together practices of mending, (re)collecting and creating to consider the lessons wrought through the kinship of text/iles.
