Ann Hamilton's giant loom in Wuzhen
June 19, 2016 9:55 AM   Subscribe

For Art Wuzhen 2016, artist Ann Hamilton transformed an old Chinese theater into a loom. This is the five-minute documentary, (alt link). Its title in Chinese, 唧唧复唧唧, is from a famous poem about the woman warrior Mulan, and refers to the sound of the loom. Hamilton's previous work with textile was presented at the Park Avenue armory in 2013.

I love it! The theatre as warp spool rack and the participant-provided sweater weft. Thanks for posting.
