Penelope's Labour - Weaving Words and Images picture

Quinn understands that "tapestry is a medium which joins two worlds - the medieval world and ours” but through a renewed interest in formal reproduction.

For Quinn, the woven “knots are like pixels”, where tapestry become “like a sculpture of a painting”, created from digital data that provides the DNA of the final image.

Weavings from the Fondazione Giorgio Cini Collection shown alongside new woven works by Marc Quinn and also Azra Aksamija, Lara Baladi, Alighiero Boetti, Maurizio Cattelan, Manuel Franquelo, Carlos Garaicoa, Craigie Horsfield and Grayson Perry.
