Dutch Uncle | News Blog: 'BATTLE OF HARAPOURI' by Kustaa Saksi Like his earlier Hypnopompic tapestries, those soon to go on show in Asia have been manufactured on a Jacquard loom at the TextielMuseum, Tilburg using natural materials such as mohair, merino and alpaca mixed with cotton + synthetic fibres such as rubber, glow-in-the-dark phosphate and metallic threads. Where the last group were born of night and the ‘sensory confusion leading out of sleep’, these relate to ‘the short-term detachment’ of daydreams. The results are no less surreal, referencing visual delusions, abstract landscapes and optical art with fantastic effect. WOOLGATHERING runs @usagi_hongkong from the 26 March–17 April 2016.
