The Pavilion Downtown is pleased to present the first solo exhibition by local artist Sara Al Haddad. Using thread and yarn as a preferred medium\, this body of work revolves around the process and the ( sometimes) futile attempts of tackling and releasing our inner negative or unresolved thoughts and feelings. Phrases that reflect the artist’s wanderi ng reflections are expressed through different stylistic stitches – with kn ots highlighting their complex nature. Yarn and thread as a material here s ymbolizes thoughts and feelings: delicate yet easily tangled.

\n

The p rocess of stitching those thoughts allows the artist time for their contemp lation\, which leads to their eventual acceptance and understanding. This s eries is a continuous work in progress reflecting on the obsessive\, repeti tive and continuous in everyday existence\, while at the same time\, the fl exibility\, movement and versatility of the yarn fibers allows for differen t emotions to be conveyed.  Moreover\, the repetitive motion involved in st itching provides a pace for serenity\, a self-therapeutic approach to medit ation and regulating the artist’s overflowing surge of emotions and thought s that are literally bursting at the seams.

\n

Besides the text based works\, and the large stitched wall installation presented in gallery one\, Sara will also be producing works as an intervention with The Pavilion spa ce whereby knitted and crocheted fabric will be placed in strategic locatio ns for The Pavilion visitors to find\, ponder and interact with.
