Textile as Metaphor in Examining East Asian History

A Net (Dis)entangled uses textile as a unifying thread that runs through every work, highlighting its cultural significance that informed artists’ ways of thinking and forms of presentation. Curator Wang Weiwei adopts the simultaneous actions of entangling and disentangling yarns as a metaphor to explore and reimagine the notion of East Asia.

Il tessuto come metafora nell’esame della storia dell’Asia orientale
A Net (Dis)entangled usa il tessuto come filo conduttore che attraversa ogni opera, evidenziando il suo significato culturale che ha informato i modi di pensare e le forme di presentazione degli artisti. Il curatore Wang Weiwei adotta le azioni simultanee di aggrovigliare e disaggrovigliare i fili come metafora per esplorare e reimmaginare la nozione di Asia orientale.
