About Fibra Residency

Fibra examines the questions: ‘What role does artisanal textile work have at the heart of a community? How do globalisation and freedom of movement change our perceptions in relation to traditions? Does it affect the preservation of crafts and the sustainability of these practices?

Fibra is an itinerant and research project created by Mia Pfeifer with a focus on exploring and examine the importance of textile traditions in local communities. We invite a selection of UK-based artists whose practices are concerned with an experimental and fine art approach to fibres, understanding textiles as a metaphor for knitting ideas, concepts, interlacing traditions to our everyday lives. They are invited to reflect on the questions at the heart of our project and to integrate this into their work.

We will be collaborating with two indigenous communities based in Colombia, for whom the preservation of ancient skills in the working of fibres has been passed from generation to generation. Most of Colombia’s rural communities and tribes consider natural fibres to be the core, indispensable element of their social structure. The spectrum of everyday uses includes wearable fabrics such as carrier bags either for personal items or for agricultural produce, as hunting traps, and in the domestic space, amongst other uses. These objects are carriers of the communities’ myths and beliefs. The very structure and process of textiles have an intrinsic relationship to cultural customs and the social fabric of these communities

LINDSEY MENDICK

Born in: United Kingdom

As a child of the 1990s Lindsey Mendick’s aesthetic sensibilities were forged in the decade that taste forgot. Her work presents a gloriously camp dreamscape of pattern and colour, with imagery pulled from culture high and low, from Botticelli to Liberace from the Gardens of Versailles to Las Vegas via The Big Breakfast. Everyday domestic objects and foodstuffs are elevated to a decadent and opulent platform. Into this Mendick weaves her own personal narratives, memories and relationships; including her mother’s seamstress skills. Though there is a nod to the excesses of bad taste and hollow consumerism, Mendick nonetheless displays a particular sense of grace in her dance through our overflowing histories. A resplendent backstroke in a stream of perfect Instagram’d meals, daily celebrity updates and 24 hour global news.
