Eye Eye | Mawuena Kattah & Laura Slater

2019

‘Eye Eye’ is an exhibition of works by Leeds based textile design practitioner Laura Slater and London based visual artist Mawuena Kattah. Responding to shared connections in their practices, of pattern and textiles, image making, and narrative found in family and personal iconography, the culmination of this shared practice are a series of large-scale printed textile and paper works.

Slater and Kattah explore textiles and print formats as visual art, questioning the nuances between artist and designer, utilising their shared and inherent methods and tools, collaboratively approaching making, drawing and image development, dually challenging the function of the studio vs. factory.
