TWO SIDES OF THE SAME COIN - amanda rataj
June 27 - March 31, 2019
Textile Museum of Canada - Toronto, Ontario
Amanda Rataj is a Toronto-based artist and craftsperson. She has a BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design University. Crosscurrents includes a coverlet woven by Amanda, titled Two Sides of the Same Coin. Amanda took inspiration for the design of her woven coverlet from Keep Me Warm One Night: Early Handweaving in Eastern Canada. The piece explores this historic weaving practice in a contemporary context, informed by the modern values of sustainability and locality that Amanda is preoccupied with as a craftsperson working today. These values are reflected in the materials Amanda chose to weave the coverlet with.
