LAB 9.2: Mary-Anne McTrowe, Crocheting the Database

October 9, 2009 - October 9, 2009

Presented in conjunction with the Vision Into Reality exhibition, Mary-Anne McTrowe has produced a crocheted history of the Art Gallery’s entire collection derived from her interest in symbolic representation, taxonomy and systems of organization: My portraits portray the Gallery’s collection as it is described through the filter of the database, and can be seen as metadata; information about information. McTrowe emphasizes artifacts from Colin Graham’s era, culminating in a work comprised of approximately 17,000 stitches; additional portraits focus on database categorizations, each taking the form of a crocheted chain approximately 400 feet long.
