Event description

Description

Sarah Filmer creates an interactive workshop on the collaborative art/research/knitting project; The Blue Jumper. Knitting performance is an activity that creates and connects, acting as a metaphor for inclusion and diversity in the form of the blue jumper.The blue jumper centres around a main body of knitting that is added to by anyone who would like to work on it. The work loops and laces its way across the gallery space – constantly changing as work is added. You will contribute to a performance art of a kind where each participant becomes part of the work and no longer observer but the observed. Becoming a community of individuals; as the piece comes into being.

Limited spaces so book to ensure a place.


Sarah Filmer is a gentle revolutionary, working with death, knitting, the human-animal relationship, and feminist perspectives. Sarah works individually and collaboratively with video, photography, drawing, and yarn-based crafts. Her work has been shown and screened locally, nationally and internationally, with recent commissions for Mottisfont Abbey gardens, National Trust, and Lux13 Critical Forum.

FASHION AS COMMUNITY 2019 returns this January to the HC Block at Solent, continuing its journey to discover how fashion and creativity can engage social good, sustainability and well-being; 2019 focuses its lens on community cultures, alternative economies, fashion consumption and collaborative creative solutions for mental health. The theme around the second Fashion as Community 2019 explores FASHION BECOMING; In philosophy becoming is being in the possibility of change, Fashion as Community 2019 will imagine and question in these moments of change; What else can fashion be?
