From March 17 - 24, Galerie Diagonale hosts an exhibition of work by twelve students in the undergraduate fibers program at Concordia University. Today I visited the show, called "Don't Call It a Comeback". Below is a photo of "Drawing Down the Moon," by April Martin. It features a web that incorporates vintage bits of lace, held in position like a cat's cradle by seven modelled hands, and suspended about one foot above the floor.
Another piece in the show that caught my eye is titled "Villages," by Lori Malépart-Traversy.
It consists of crocheted house-like shapes, connected by strands of yarn.
Galerie Diagonale is located at 5455 de Gaspé, suite 203, in Montreal. Its hours are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 5 p.m. www.artdiagonale.org
