Anna Torma: Book Of Abandoned Details
Esker Foundation, Calgary, AB - To Sep 2
A remarkable textile artist, Anna Torma creates large-scale, hand-embroidered wall hangings and collages that manage to be both monumental in impact and intimate in mood. Her work, she has said, addresses “femininity, domesticity, and ethnicity,” and evinces the influences of children’s art, folk art and Art Brut. Born in Tarnaörs, Hungary and educated at the Hungarian University of Applied Arts in Budapest, Torma arrived in Canada in 1988 and has been based in Baie Verte, New Brunswick since 2002.
