Low Impact – Cape Breton Centre for Craft

Low Impact

Low Impact is a solo exhibition by Juliana Scherzer.

Low Impact is a collection of 15 preserved leaf quilts playing with concepts of universality, sustainability and textiles. Each piece is an exploration of the complex relationship of humanity’s interactions with the natural world. The intersections and contrasts between the natural and the artificial are explored through the manipulation of organic materials with contemporary textile techniques. Drawing on organic imagery of pathways – roots, veins, woven structures – preserved leaves are then cut, sewn and woven into a series of modern, asymmetrical botanical quilts.

Low Impact will be on display at the Centre’s Loft from October 8 – November 14, 2020.
