Knitflicks, part 1
Compton Verney gallery in Warwickshire asked us to put together something filmy which will complement their Fabric of Myth exhibition, opening next month. We settled on a programme of knitting-related shorts and animation, to screen throughout the weekend of 19/20 July with free needles, wool and knitting tuition for those who'd like to have a go. More info soon, but in the meantime here's a youtube clip of one of the films: a promo for 'Les peaux de lièvres' by Canadian duo Tricot Machine. The animation by Simon Laguanière was made using over 700 frames created on an electronic knitting machine.
With special thanks to David at Dare to Care records.
