Exciting news – Durban artist, Fiona Kirkwood heard today that her award-winning latest installation, Rain, will be exhibited at the 11th International Fiber Art Biennale: “From Lausanne to Beijing”, curated out of Beijing China, which can be viewed online from this Saturday, 16 January, exhibiting alongside some of the most respected global art makers.
In December, it was announced that she had won a Silver Medal for Rain. The exhibition attracted 1 000 entries, from 54 countries, of which 313 (119 from China and 194 from other countries) finalists were selected by an international jury consisting of 21 leading artists and academics.
Rain is made out of nylon, beads, steel wool, aluminium and digitally printed polyester and comments on how climate change is affecting rainfall patterns in South Africa and in different parts of the world.
“In this very troubled time of COVID-19 I am so grateful that my artwork is still being appreciated globally,” enthused Kirkwood.
