exposition que j'ai découverte via le blog de Tim Johnson : ".......My full time residency will be during May 2011 and I'lll be developing a new body of working exploring woven costumes and performance. I will be researching traditional British folk costumes alongside works in the World Art Collections at the Sainsbury Centre and the Basketry Exhibition." ......

Basketry: making human nature brings together traditional and contemporary basketry from Western Amazonia, North America, Oceania, Africa, Japan, South-East Asia and Europe. The exhibition reveals the extraordinary uses of basketry technology and asks us to consider its place in human culture.
