Over the past decade, Jodie Carey has explored the universal human urge to make an impression on our surroundings. Her most recent site-responsive sculptural installation at Edel Assanti will centre around a series of monumental woven canvases, suspended in the air on steel armatures. Using strips of canvas dipped in paint and woven whilst wet, their surfaces are worked and reworked with paint, colouring pencil, and thread. Through revisiting traditional techniques such as weaving and casting, Carey’s oeuvre emphasises the relationship between object making and commemoration, whilst also looking to the physical world as a repository of material memory, silently registering the passage of time.
