Jovencio De La Paz's "Every Stitch in the World of Flames" in the Governor's Ceremonial Office
October 1 to November 29, Free
Jovencio De la Paz explores how textile processes—such as weaving, dye and stitchwork—intersect with broader concerns of language, histories of colonization, migrancy, ancient technology and speculative futures. Confronting issues of embodiment and disembodiment, his current work employs a hand-operated digital TC2 Jacquard loom to create textiles that exist between the physicality of cloth and the ephemeral states of digital. His work in "Every Stitch in the World of Flames" capitalizes on the lineage that unites hand-looms, punch-card Jacquard looms and IBM's early punch-card computers. The resulting textiles are familiar in their tactility and surface, but alien in their digital geometries and pixelated distortions. For more information, see www.oregonartscommission.org.
