Den L Scheer and Eric C are emerging artists based in Perth, both holding a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Curtin University. In residence, Den and Eric will explore historical textile techniques that have been interrogated and repositioned within a contemporary context to discuss ways of retaining these skills through production. Their collaborative project will also represent their unique familial narratives. The final outcome will include large scale soft sculptural works that combine their different skills in the form of a quilted set of reclaimed wool bags or hides.
