Paul Yore | Let The World Burn

A solo exhibition by internationally acclaimed textile artist Paul Yore


Free Entry


Saturday 9th November 2019 - Sunday 1st March 2020


10.00am - 4.00pm


Ararat Gallery TAMA



Through the uncomfortable intermingling of images, words, ideologies and materials, Let The World Burn questions the cultural codes that govern our bodies and behaviour; and examines the role of art within society. By using reclaimed material and painstaking hand-embroidering techniques, Yore utilises the historical deployment of subversive domestic hand-craft to lay the woes of the world to bear. 

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  Australiana sourced from kitsch tea-towels, graphics from T-shirts and many other disparate elements. These tactile pieces are immediate and familiar; as too is the imagery used to capture Yore’s interpretation of the atmosphere today.

Please note: visitors are advised that Let The World Burn contains explicit material.
