Sky Bound

An installation dance & textiles piece.

 

Made by Marie - Louise Flexen and textile artist

Corinne Hockley.

 

Marie-Louise Flexen and Corrine Hockley of Studio Seven first began collaborating In May 2007 on ‘Textiles in Performance’, a pioneering event of combined arts at Woodchester Mansion in Stroud and Quenington sculpture garden.

 

A  trapped winged female weaves a story of secrets and memories as she journeys from her internal world of sadness to an attempted escape. She has the answers but is unable to free herself. Cadged and restricted like a bird that belongs in the sky. This solo draws inspiration    performed in. Combining the beauty of physical language with installation and textile design ‘Sky Bound’ captures a sense of other worldliness with a fragile and human heart.
