Refuge by Grace Tan

Artist-designer Grace Tan from Singapore, who regularly makes gorgeous spatial and wearable textile pieces with kwodrent, a creative practice she founded in 2003, recently displayed an equally gorgeous cloud-like sculpture at the Singapore Art Museum made out of the sort of polypropylene loop pins you find in a stationery store.

She said to a magazine that she conceived the work as a deliberate challenge to work beyond her usual media of fabric and paper. Looks like it’s working well.
