Greetings from Mochimochi
Opening October 7th 2010 at gallery hanahou, craft artist Anna Hrachovec will unveil a hand-knitted installation made out of 200 balls of yarn and more than a million stitches. Greetings from Mochimochi is a weird world of fun and chaos hand-knitted by Anna. The opening will take place from 7PM until 9PM, with the show running until October 29th.
In her first solo show, craft artist Anna Hrachovec stretches the possibilities of knitting as a medium to create an expansive and wacky landscape installation. Crash-landed aliens, rat-infested skyscrapers, giant ants, and everything else that comprises the 8-foot installation is entirely hand-knitted by the artist, who used 200 balls of yarn and more than a million stitches to make it all come to life. And just for fun, the piece includes a working model train - converted into a silly knitted monster, of course!
