At Towner Eastbourne, Andrea Mindel, a contemporary textile and multi-disciplinary artist based in the UK, will carry out her intervention: War?! What War? - How does one achieve eternal bliss?
Using the traditional embroidery technique of goldwork they will incorporate a surprising and original approach.
Andrea Mindel's needlework practice confronts themes of social injustice, grief and mourning within the context of climate crisis, illness, disease and genocide.
Embroidering with conscience and creating materiality through the repetitive motion of stitch, Andrea's work pays tribute, memorialising and making beautiful things from difficult narratives.
The interventions cover a wide range of artistic practices including performative; time based; ephemeral; quirky; unusual; minimal; solo/duo/group; digital and much more.
Sara Cooper, Head of Collections and Exhibitions, Towner Eastbourne said:
"Towner Eastbourne is really proud to be one of the hosts involved in this historic nationwide project which confronts the longstanding lack of visibility for Disabled people in the arts.
"Having collaborated previously with the artist Andrea Mindel on our podcast series 'Collectively', it's been a privilege to see her develop this unique and engaging piece of work that will be one of the first to use our newly developed ground floor."
