Berber Carpet | Jacqui Hallum

Berber Carpet | Jacqui Hallum

This is the third in an on-going sequence of exhibitions, curated by Daniel Howard-Birt, in which Hallum’s work is presented in the context of an object or set of small artworks by another maker. Here, Jacqui will be exhibiting alongside antique examples of Berber rugs made in the High Atlas Mountains of North Africa and loaned from a private collection.

Jacqui Hallum’s paintings draw on imagery ranging from medieval woodcuts and leaded glass windows to tarot cards and Art Nouveau children’s book illustrations. She works across a number of loose cotton sheets, staining and dying them with drawing ink, graffiti ink and squid ink. The sheets move between Hallum’s studio and garden throughout this process, before they are grouped and pinned together, concealing and revealing themselves to create a multi-part work.
