About the Exhibition
Bulumko Mbete’s ‘A Thousand Things’ explores the ways in which textiles relate to an individual’s embodied knowledge and sense of place. Featuring domestic and utilitarian materials such as wool, plastic, cotton, blankets and beads, Mbete’s artworks experiment with alternating and challenging our experience of their materiality. Through the exploration of familiar and familial materials, she finds a language to speak to the woven connectivity of relationships and experiences. Ultimately, Mbete uses her textile artworks to unravel the ways her chosen materials intersect culturally.
