Intertwine explores the understanding of material, processes of making and the relationship between human and environment. Commenting on the impact of consumerism, and the harmful effect it has on marine ecosystems.
The Intertwine series emphasises the use of recycled materials and is developed as site-specific work to enhance the understanding of our environment.
The CCC Capsule edition of Intertwine is created by working with the Victorian Fisheries Authority and the Yabby-Net Swap Program. The wildlife-friendly program recycles and repurposes 20,000 opera-house nets to protect air breathing wildlife, such as native water rats (rakali), platypus and turtles.
Yu Fang Chi is a Taiwan-born artist working within textile, silversmithing, sculpture, and spatial installation in Asia, Australia, and Europe. In her practice, Chi explores the processes of weaving and the position of human body. Grappling with contemporary issues such as environment, emotional cognition, time’s flowing passage and more explorations of landscape and remoteness, Chi’s work uses processes of repetition, ephemerality and the interplay of light and shadow to open discussions around contemporary society’s pressing topics.
