Form and Shadow Basketry SA Inc - Titled: Transmission 

Many various coloured wires are bundled and stitched to a round gourd. These wires then separte and become individual swirls, disseminating information. The shadows cast imply that some of this news is good, some not so.

Form and Shadow Basketry SA Inc

Opening by Melinda Rankin, Director, Fabrik Arts & Heritage at 2pm on Saturday 
17 February.

Japanese author and novelist Jun’ichirō Tanizaki’s In Praise of Shadows written in 1933 ( examines the idea that shadows are an essential and influential part of Japanese aesthetics. Shadows offer moments of mystery and trance in everyday life. A simple shadow is an art form unto itself: its mere existence relies on invisible details that are either carefully thought out or results of chance.

Beauty is found not only in the form but in the shadows. Basketry SA members create practical baskets and sculptural forms using a variety of materials while contemplating the beauty that exists in shadows.
