Jill Nordfors-Clark in International Triennial of Tapestry Exhibition

Jill Nordfors Clark traveled to Lodz, Poland in May with Friends of Fiber Art for the opening of the 15th International Triennial of Tapestry exhibition, at the Central Museum of Textiles, May 9 to October 30, 2016.

Jill was invited to exhibit her work  as one of five fiber artists representing the USA. The exhibition includes 150 works from 50 different countries.

Jill’s entry, When a Tree Falls in the Forest, was inspired by the words of Anglo-Irish philosopher Bishop George Berkeley, “When a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear, does it make a sound?” The series of stitched lace like columns represents the ghosts of fallen trees, and the resulting scars on the land caused by clear-cut logging in the forests of the western USA and Canada.
