Join us to celebrate the opening of ‘Rachel Scott. weaving my world’ at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset.
Rachel Scott’s hands are forever busy. She weaves every morning and spends her evenings spinning wool for the following day’s weaving, all in a small studio at the top of her house in Pimlico, London.
‘weaving my world’ is a homage to Scott’s individual style of homemaking. Just like the floors, walls and spaces of her domestic life, the exhibition celebrates her vast creative output, including handwoven rugs, braided rag rugs, knitted patchwork covered chairs and cushions, bags, scarves, patchwork dresses, woollen suits, tea and chess sets, and early paintings dating from the 1960s. In addition to Scott‘s own work, the exhibition will feature pieces by her husband, abstract expressionist painter, Frank Bowling and her daughters, Marcia and Iona Scott.
‘Rachel Scott. weaving my world’ is on view at Make Hauser & Wirth Somerset from Saturday 19 November 2022 until Saturday 11 February 2023.
