Weaving New Worlds presents two Norwegian artists

at William Morris Gallery

An exhibition of contemporary tapestries, Weaving New Worlds explores the human condition through two lenses – the utopian and the dystopian.

 

Norwegian artist Mari Meen Halsøy has been working for the last eight years in Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, a city marked by violence and political unrest. Halsøy weaves, on site, patches for the ‘wounds’ of the buildings, as an act of metaphorical and actual healing. Her tapestry Snipers Room will be exhibited for the first time in the UK, alongside Tonje Høydahl Sørli’s Brittle Little and The Brutal Truth and 14 other artists from the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Japan.
