Kathryn Tsui

A companion publication to Kathryn Tsui's 2024 exhibition; cloud ribbon, this soft-bound publication includes full colour images of the artist's textiles and process, alongside an essay by Grace Lai and a conversation between Kathryn Tsui and Wailin Elliott. 

In 2023 Kathryn Tsui embarked on a new body of work catalysed by research into textiles, bead works and ceramics from across Asia and Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa. Across this body of work, Tsui tells a story of patterning that reflects on intersections of Asian and European cultural histories. Celebrating labour-intensive making practices traditionally completed by women, and the domestic space as a site of creative production, Tsui presents a layered consideration of her own practice under the influence of her cultural identity.

Kathryn Tsui is a textile-based artist who works primarily in loom weaving and beading and currently lives in Tairua in Te Tara-o-te-Ika-a-Māui Coromandel Peninsula. An ongoing thread in her practice is a focus on mass-produced objects and common patterns where Asian material culture has intersected with other traditions and influences. The result is a dialogue between notions of value and embedded sociocultural hierarchies.
