STRETCH is a three-dimensional installation that investigates the relationship of construction and deconstruction. The act of sewing nylon under tension pulls the material to its limits. Eventually, it can no longer withstand the strain and shreds itself, starting at the weakest point. This cycle is continuous; repairing a flaw creates another, until there is nothing left but the scars created by the thread. This constant reparation-disintegration process poses the question of when to stop trying to fix the imperfection and accept it for what it is.
MEGAN SLATER recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fibre from the Alberta College of Art + Design. Her main studio practice focuses on ideas of tension, restriction and loss. She utilizes the material qualities of nylon to communicate her ideas.
