Jeanette Stok: Mutagenesis

WHEN : 6th March – 7th May
WHERE : Artisan

Jeanette Stok is a Brisbane-based artist who is influenced by her work as a research scientist and the traditional crafts introduced to her by mother and grandmother. Stok’s wire embroidery installation, Mutagenesis, is created using Hardanger embroidery techniques, which traditionally employ repeated motifs to create symmetrical, geometric designs that share much in common with the replication of living cells. Stok transforms traditional Hardanger configurations to represent the concept of mutation that occurs when internal mistakes or external factors disrupt the patterns of living cells.
