Archontoula Tsatsoulaki Unravelling my secret paths. North House Gallery is delighted to present a show of textile art by Archontoula Tsatsoulaki, work which has grown out of her MA degree show at Chelsea College of Arts in 2019, where her presentation and personality shone out from her contemporaries. Equally noticeable was her thick mane of long black hair, which, as it transpires, she uses in her work.

The focus of Archontoula’s practice is to understand the secret messages, symbols and codes in the patterning of clothes. For her main installation she collected her (naturally shed) hair, transformed it into a yarn and wove it with natural materials such as wool or cotton into a long textile grid. Recalling a map of an urban grid, it represents a map of her own secret thoughts and symbols from her wanderings through London.
