RUST: A Topography of Time

A textural conversation between Mirka Knaster and Renée Owen, entwining their interpretations of the diaspora, lines stretched across the globe, with the patterns and colors of rust creating a metaphor for the changes and loss woven through the refugees’ plight. Whether working with rust-dyed fabric, cast paper pulp or found rusty wire and objects, the immersion in materials evolves. Colors, layers and the haptic act of stitching or shaping are transmuted into a visual poetry that conjures up the pathos of rough seas, remote mountain passages or desolate desert terrain that displaced people navigate in their desperate search for safety. A collective narrative unfolds, which speaks to our own personal histories and cultural roots, reminding us that we are all connected fragments of humanity.
