Deities, Beasts & Beauty

Exhibition at the Hellenic Centre

 

This exhibition presents an innovative process of textile production and design: from initial embroideries of Greek beasts, deities, and traditional decorative motifs, repeat designs are made and printed onto fabric; this fabric is then used to make clothes and costumes for puppets. What starts off as unique and delicate embroidery is transformed into bold and striking printed clothes: Persephone wears her own pomegranate fabric, and Hades wear his Cerberus gown.
