The Workshop gallery and workshop space is pleased to announce its first exhibit in 2018 featuring Australian artist Jacqueline Stojanovic opening February 8th. Pirot Notes comprises a body of work encapsulating a yearlong journey made overland from Central Asia to Serbia following the historical trade route and eventual introduction of carpet making to Pirot. During this time Stojanovic learnt the art of carpet making and later created this series at the Icelandic Textile Centre in Blonduos, Iceland, where she was an artist in residence during November 2017. The work raises concerns about the preservation of tradition in modern society in drawing direct reference to the artists own ancestral link to Pirot cilim weavers and the broader tradition of carpet making in Serbia.
