Biography

Kelly Limerick (b. 1991) is a Singaporean self-taught textile artist known for her crochet and knit works. Often creating without a sketch or fixed design, she has stretched this traditional craft beyond predictable patterns and challenges the stigma of crochet being a ‘granny craft’. 

 

Kelly's current line of inquiry concerns itself with the status of crochet as a ‘craft’, and explores destruction and deconstruction of a medium that is additive in nature. While considering the potential of crochet in both delicate lacework as well as its ability to be translated through different mediums in large installations, her work aims to reframe this craft in contemporary times and question the relevance of slow art in a fast-paced society.

 

Today, her work ranges from soft sculptures, textile hangings and mix media installations. She has been an Artist-in-Residence in the Facebook APAC HQ, exhibited with Esplanade Singapore, and worked with brands like National Heritage Board Singapore, Disney, and most recently Gucci.
