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." ......
