“Witch With Comb”
ANNE LOW

September 9–October 28, 2017
Opening Friday, September 8, 8pm

ANNE LOW is based in Vancouver, Canada. Low’s work engages with the history of textiles and weaving and the artist’s role in upholding unique orders of knowledge embedded within these practices. Her work speaks to wider narratives around the impulse to individuate surface, object and self. Her recent and forthcoming group exhibitions include Dream Islands, Nanaimo Art Gallery (2017); Separation Penetrates, Mercer Union (2017); Ambivalent Pleasures, Vancouver Art Gallery (2016) and Reading the Line, The Western Front, Vancouver (2015). She has collaborated with The Grantchester Pottery as part of The Grantchester Pottery Paints the Stage, Jerwood Space, London, (2015), and ARTIST DECORATORS, ICA, London, (2013). Her weavings made in collaboration with Gareth Moore were shown as part of his work A place, near the buried canal for dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel, 2012. She regularly studies at the Marshfield School of Weaving in Vermont.
