Here it is, the official info for my show this October in NYC!
Greetings from Mochimochi
a weird world of fun and chaos hand-knitted by Anna Hrachovec
October 7 – 29, 2010
Opening reception: Thursday, October 7, 7-9 p.m. – RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
611 Broadway, Suite 730, NYC
In her first solo show, craft artist Anna Hrachovec stretches the possibilities of knitting as a medium to create an expansive and wacky landscape installation. Crash-landed aliens, rat-infested skyscrapers, giant ants, and everything else that comprises the 8-foot installation is entirely hand-knitted by the artist, who used 200 balls of yarn and more than a million stitches to make it all come to life. And just for fun, the piece includes a working model train – converted into a silly knitted monster, of course!
Some of the elements in the piece are based on designs in Anna’s 2010 book of knitted toy patterns, Knitting Mochimochi.
If you are in the NY area, please join me for the opening on October 7th!
