Igshaan Adams was Social Fabric artist-in-residence exploring off-cuts. Igshaan's work is often hard to pin-down, as its subject matter is in-betweens. Formally, many of his pieces exist between textile and sculpture, while the work draws meaning from the push-and-pull of conflicting identities. If works such as his woven prayer mat-based works explore construction of identities, works such as the one shown explores also explore their fragmentation or when identities break down. Here, the work is made up of delicate components held together by found thread in a fragile state of being.
