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. Just prior to his Social Fabric artist-in-residence, Igshaan chanced upon a white rope that had gotten dirty during its fabrication and had been relegated to the "seconds bin". Igshaan found the variation of white and greys appealing and used it to weave the prayer mat based work shown.
