“We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry. And we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value no matter what their colour.” – Maya Angelou
Diversity Fiber Art Exhibition curated by Dal Botha is an extraordinary satellite exhibition of the South African Quilt Festival featuring artists from across South Africa.
So I am happy to announce that my work “The sly fox a cat and a fish magically appeared’ is included in this exhibition
The sly fox a cat and a fish magically appeared 2022 photographic print, thread and rubber 122 x 87.5 cm Hannalie Taute
This exhibition can be viewed from the 5th of October 2022 until the end of January 2023 at the Rupert Museum in Stellenbosch.
for more info please contact Dal Botha at email@example.com
“The exhibition explores womxn through the work of local artists, either engaging directly with thread, fiber or textile as a medium of expression, or indirectly by referring to the connotations brought forth by the ideas associated with the exhibition title. Loaded with gender connotations and power hierarchies, fiber-based handicrafts such as crochet, embroidery, knitting, macrame, quilting, sewing, or other media referencing ideas and associations to threads provide a fitting platform to examine the roles and representations within and round womxn in our society.” (note from the curators)

Our Mother who art our beloved earth…Happy Mothers day.
I recently learned about some of Mother Natures amazing creatures via a very entertaining series called: Absurd Planet:
I am in awe of some of the amazing tricks these creatures have to be able to survive in very interesting conditions, which made me think about a character in a Roald Dahl book….
“I thought up secret plans and clever tricks” said the crocodile in the story: The enormous crocodile by Roald Dahl.

But I’m too tough for him

I’m not going to let anybody see you
There is a bluebird in my heart that wants to get out…”
