Albu and Barrett’s exhibition Knit, Purl, Listen depict knitters who work in music, sound, performance and radio. This collection is a sonic exploration of textile tools, processes, reflections and memories of working: from land to sheep to fibre to yarn to garment. This interactive sonic space asks how handcraft sounds, and how craft artists experience sound internally (real or imagined/implied) while working with material. It asks how we experience the life of an object through its multiple transformations, and through memory and reflection after its present form has been created.
