Amanatiadis investigates various techniques for working with string using various contemporary incarnations and in doing so considers its dual properties and even broader cosmic significance.

INFORMATION

The exhibition “String Line” continues Helen Amanatiadis’ exploration of the primitive technology of string and its role in human techno-genesis, with both toxic and curative effect. Without the invention of string, humans could not have produced containers, clothes and carrying devices which facilitated transport, storage, housing, seafaring, fishing and various other complex inventions. These technologies, in turn, led to mining, land development, colonisation, industrialisation and even computing code, with equally destructive and constructive outcomes. In this new body of work, Amanatiadis investigates various techniques for working with string using various contemporary incarnations and in doing so considers its dual properties and even broader cosmic significance.
