Ismini Samanidou exhibited her work at Textiles Hub London during the autumn of 2013 as part of Textiles Hub London’s My Nature exhibitions and publications curated by Emma Neuberg.
Samanidou’s works are the poetry of woven photography. She stands alone in the histoy of textiles as an artist who creates cloth that shows us a black and white landscape or the flickering motion of golden, autumnal leaves on water much like an Ansel Adams of weave.
As a graduate of Woven Textiles from the Royal College of Art (2000), she went on to become the first British-Greek weaver to hold an Artist Residency at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in the USA. Subsequently, she was commissioned by the Tate Modern for their pioneering exhibition Anni Albers.
Ismini Samanidou is one of the most important weavers of her generation.
