Transformation: Material, Magic and Memory
A group exhibition including work by Barbara Rogers was held at the Fashion Gallery, Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong from 1 - 26th March, 2010.

Ours is a material world in the truest, most basic sense - one in which we literally weave and wear textiles as a layer of protection from natural elements and also as a means of comfort, identity and self expression.

Earth's elements are our raw materials - harvested then manipulated and finally transformed into objects. Often the transformational process gets embedded into the material like a memory and slowly reveals it's makers hands, spirit and mind. Fiber is one of the most pliable materials and yet has a remarkable ability to hold permanence. Cloth is a record of history in many ways - be it through wear and tear, dyeing and fading, or even embroidery. This exhibition looks at a horizon of works that tell a story of a change beneath the surface.

Jointly presented by Poly U & World Shibori Network
