coiling is a type of weaving that starts with one central point around which a material is wound, spiraling outward and upward in concentric circles until a structure is created. extending this, the works in the show are built around the idea of a three-dimensional coil, a form both practical and symbolic. aranda\lasch and errol dew johnson worked together using this technique to create contemporary pieces which blur the boundaries between traditional and sculptural forms, revealing the intricate and repetitive nature involved in this process.

 

the exhibition is on show at volume gallery until april 8th 2017.
