Artist whose installation comprises a suspended web of dried rice threaded on fine cotton. Her intention is to link those overlooked elements which are essential to our survival and our cultural heritage: food and clothing - rice and fibre.

  4. This is unusual. It looks like an exhibition I saw (and showed on my blog) last year at MassMOCA, a contemporary art museum in the Berkshires, near Williamstown.
