Invasive crochet: Lace doilies and razor wire

April 21, 2011

Artist Crystal Gregory created this Invasive Crochet installation as part of a show in New York called Art in Odd Places. Via her web site:

Invasive Crochet challenges gender roles by placing handwork on hardened city surfaces around New York. Crocheting lace doilies onto the razor wire of an abandoned lot for the 14th Street public art show Art in Odd Places, smothering the urban landscape in a soft, decorative, and familiar juxtaposition.

And suddenly I have no idea where I found this. Suffice to say, it was certainly somewhere.

Shauna Richardson: Chrochetdermy

March 23, 2011

Maybe I’m late to the table on this one, but I just encountered Shauna Richardson‘s taxidermy crochet for the first time. I don’t think they require a terrible amount of explanation, but I will say that the photography of her taxidermy “in the wild” is really pretty striking. Also via her website: “For two years she has been creating the largest single-handed crochet sculpture in the world. The finished piece will be housed in a mobile glass taxidermy style case and tour throughout 2012.” What! Can’t wait to see the unveiling of this crochet behemoth. (via who killed bambi)
