Abstract (English)

Quinton’s curatorial essay on Morton’s knitted sculptures focuses on three projects: the “Newsflash” (1995) and “Wool Work” (2000) exhibitions and the outdoor installation “Cozy” (1999 and 2000). Quinton provides detailed descriptions of the projects, and suggests Morton’s repetitive, labour-intensive process draws attention to relationships between knitting and memory, art and craft. Issues of domesticity and ritual are also discussed. Includes list of works. Brief biographical notes. 11 bibl. ref.
