Presented by In Space, Felt Encounters celebrates the history of the Pacific Felt Factory by featuring artists who represent a resurgence of felt works as fine art. Industrial felt is the material of choice for these artists. A wide range of multi-disciplinary approaches merge traditional felt-making crafts and fine art in this unique exhibit.
Latifa Medjdoub's ID series of print and painting on felt engages questions of identity at the intersection of technology and craftsmanship. The images incorporate a novel combination of techniques from several disciplines, including printing, painting, sculpture and photography. The
images reinterpret the enduring image of the doll, playfully evoking our multi-faceted, overlapping identities in modern society.
