Kia Utzon-Frank and Fay McCaul at Collect

On 2–6 February 2017, Collect Open will see the arrival in the Saatchi Gallery of an eye-catching and immersive new installation created by multifaceted designer Kia Utzon-Frank and textile artist Fay McCaul – both graduates of the Royal College of Art. Selected by the Crafts Council to appear at the international art fair, their gallery-filling piece Curved Twist is a monumental colour-changing screen that combines both designers’ expertise to create an immersive, interactive and entirely new expression of art, craft and design innovation.

The mechanism behind Curved Twisted is Utzon’s Frank’s patented Louver Twisting Comb™ – aka the KUF twist – a cordless shutter system comprising individually adjustable slats that allow the user to open or close them to create bespoke patterns of light and shadow.

The remarkable shimmering rainbow effect of the installation, however, is down to McCaul. The designer specialises in creating hand-knitted textiles that make use of light-generating or reactive materials to make fabrics that generate different colours and patterns depending on the movement of the fabric and the perspective of the viewer.
