The eccentric and fantastical world of textile creatures that looks like they will come to life at night. Multi-Disciplinary Artist Veronika Olivier brings her intricately sewn and constructed menagerie to the Gallery at ‘Die Hoofmuseum’ (cnr. Sol Plaatje & Wolmarans Street, Potchefstroom), in her first solo exhibition in South Africa, from 10 April – 31 May 2022.
More than 120 individual mixed media textile sculptures and art vessels showcase Veronika’s masterful combination and manipulation of up-cycled and new materials, from discarded fabrics, wire and wood, to paper, plastic packaging, tie-backs and rescued haberdashery. The self-taught artist has drawn inspiration from childhood memories, life experiences and creative genius to make these magnificent textile creatures and vessels.
