F’D Up

F’d Up! aims to explore the tension between these new directions that redefine the concept of “fibre art” based on examples of significant artists working in North America today. Based upon experimentation, these works differentiate the protagonists from decades before, thereby illustrating how a new vocabulary is created as the result of a formative radical gesture.

Franco Arcieri: Astral Noise

Emerging artist Franco Arcieri investigates motion and movement with the use of fabric as a means of concealing
his body. Appearing as an achetype and performing in an almost dreamlike trance, the artist plays with our memory and
senses. Arcieri employs sculpture, video and sound to create an encounter with the viewer through an innovative fibre-based
performance.
