Well done to Pi Artworks for a double show of the German-Egyptian artist Susan Hefuna, with her solo exhibition at the gallery in Eastcastle Street and inclusion in the Pi Artworks stand at the recent and new Draw Art Fair. Inevitably what was on show at the Draw Art Fair was limited and acted as a taster to the more extensive exhibition ‘Textiles’ in the gallery itself.
Here we have a wider variety of work including her dramatic black and white dresses which are not the sort of dresses you would expect to see being worn by the masses in Oxford Street, but more suited to priests or priestesses in classical historic temples or in an opera at Covent Garden – perhaps a project in waiting? Also on show are other textile works, different in style and colour, focussed on phrases and words. like banners for a demonstration in London, along with her geometric architectural drawings.
