Lisa Anne Auerbach: Take this ..

While the Nottingham Contemporary building was under completion, two exhibitions were realised in the main window overlooking the Lace Market. The second took place 12th September – 18th October 2009.

Lisa Anne Auerbach produced a radical knitwear collection, incorporating slogans influenced by the contemporary associations suggested by outlaw legend of Robin Hood. The project’s title, Take this Knitting Machine and Shove It, was inspired by the songs of the Luddites, the early 18th century secret society whose members smashed the mechanised knitting frames that threatened their livelihood.
