Shedding the constraints of the linear loom in the 1960s, Swiss-born artist Françoise Grossen opened a world of formal, thematic and technical possibilities in fiber related art. At first blush, Grossen’s large suspended rope forms feel like sinewy slaughterhouse meat, kowtowing forms, or slithering sea-creatures but closer inspection reveal lovely plays of intricate knots and loops that sometimes get intertwined with paper, linen or metal. A contemporary of Eva Hesse and Louise Bourgeois, Grossen shares similar concerns with process and the modern re-imagining of an arts and crafts artform that has afforded women artistic expression for centuries but that feels as fresh and relevant as it was made yesterday.
