The Pixels+Fibre project is a collaboration between artists Fiona Gavino and Myrto Angelouli, initiated to explore the possibilities of combining the ancient techniques of weaving with the contemporary arts of digital imagery. The opportunity was presented with their year-long artist residency at the Fremantle Arts Centre (Moores Studios Program) in 2013-2014. Since then, the duo’s work has been selected for solo and group exhibitions and installations within Australia and for participation in a number of international video and digital art festivals.
Fiona Gavino with Australian, Filipino & Maori heritage is naturally interested in and influenced by working with the methodology of fusions. Her art practice thrives on the boundaries of existing paradigms; her artwork belongs neither to the world of textile art or basketry but more to the realm of sculpture. In 2014 Gavino was awarded an Asialink Residency were she spent three months in the Philippines. She returned to Manila in 2015 for a solo show at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines.
