JURY STATEMENT

The jury looked anonymously through 67 applications from 17 countries, in total 118 textile artworks. From these 40 artworks by 38 artists were chosen for ARTAPESTRY5. The jury was impressed by the range and diversity of work submitted and the breadth of themes being explored. Whilst the focus was predominantly on the medium of woven tapestry, including Jacquard, more experimental approaches were also given consideration. The main themes selected for the exhibition could be broadly categorised as abstract, decorative and poetical composition, social aspects including family history, nature combined with philosophical issues and decoration inspired by tradition.
