Alula Editions works in collaboration with artists to create repeat patterns for textiles that defy expectations and move beyond purely aesthetic considerations. Subscribers to Alula Editions receive 4 editioned objects a year (sculptural or functional) made from this hand silkscreened fabric. www.Alulaeditions.com
During their one-month occupation of the Royal NoneSuch gallery Alula Editions will turn the gallery into a workshop for their inaugural production. The first edition, which uses work by artist Jason Jägel, investigates the repeating pattern for its link to the electromagnetic fascia of life as found in brotherhood, family, and other social relationships. Visitors to the gallery will witness the production process as it unfolds over the month. There will also be an opportunity for public participation in the form of workshops designed to give visitors a hands-on introduction to the ideas present in the edition.
