TEXTILES is Susan Hefuna’s seventh solo exhibition with Pi Artworks.

Bringing together a curated selection of textile and costume works, TEXTILES showcases new works such as Stand Up (2019) alongside costumes and masks previously used for performances in Dubai, UAE (2008); Mapping Vienna , at the Opera Ball in Vienna, Austria (2010); and Crossroads Stein, in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland (2018).

Susan Hefuna brings ethnic influences from her dual Germany and Egyptian heritage and from her journeys around the world. Hefuna works within TEXTILES are inspired by the Swabian-Alemannic carnival which she has great enthusiasm for. The events, which take place in the settlement areas of the Germanic tribes of the traditions of the Swabians and Alemanns mixes in Hefuna's works with her interest for African traditions and her admiration for the Ballets Russes costumes.
