Franschhoek Wine Valley

Threads of Synergy – a new exhibition of South African tapestry art opens at La Motte

In a world where disembodied virtual experiences have become the order of the day, Threads of Synergy – a new exhibition of South African tapestry art in the La Motte Museum – pays homage to the artisans’ presence in the making. This exhibition of large-scale tapestries calls for a tactile encounter, regaining sensitivity towards surfaces and reawakening our sense of touch.

As an authentic South African art experience, Threads of Synergy presents a selection of tapestries woven by the Stephens Tapestry Studio and includes South-African artists Robert Hodgins, William Kentridge, Sam Nhlengethwa, Cecily Sash and Cecil Skotnes. By extending traditional boundaries between art and craft, tapestry reveals the very essence of creative collaboration between artists, designers and weavers. Threads of Synergy in the La Motte Museum adds another sensory experience to La Motte’s acclaimed art offering that includes the estate’s famed Pierneef exhibition, a wealth of sculptures, classical music concerts, the culinary arts and of course, the art of winemaking.
