Let The World Burn features an uncomfortable intermingling of images, words, ideologies and materials. Achieved through painstaking hand-embroidering techniques, Yore uses these to question the cultural codes that govern one’s body and behaviour; and examine the role of art within society.
Let The World Burn, takes What a Horrid Fucking Mess (2016) as its central piece. Acquired by Ararat Gallery TAMA in 2016, What a Horrid Fucking Mess is a large-scale, hand-sewn, mixed media textile work that incorporates appliqué, embroidery and painting alongside collaged found material: Australiana sourced from kitsch tea-towels, graphics from T-shirts and many other disparate elements.
These tactile materials are immediate and familiar; as too is the imagery used to capture Yore’s interpretation of the atmosphere today.
