The French term entre-deux means a lace ribbon that joins or separates two pieces of cloth. It also defines a space or state of being between two extremes. French-Australian artist Diana Brennan takes industrial techniques and materialises them out of their context to create original lacework that examines the transition between a jumper and its long billowing skirt. The silhouettes are a continuation of Brennan’s preoccupation and fascination with the natural effects of light on cloth, the structure and textures of textiles and the memory of corporal associations. The work references Entre-deux DB 93, exhibited in the Love Lace exhibition.
