Behind the scenes


Your Days Are Numbered,

Mixed Textiles, ink, paint and mixed threads 120.0 × 140.0 cm

This multimedia piece, formed of mixed textiles, ink, paint and mixed threads, is part of a series where the game of Snakes and Ladders provides a basis for the artwork’s pattern, design and sociopolitical themes. In this piece numbers layer the playing board alongside Roman numerals and double-edged snake tongues professing statements such as ‘bored to death’, ‘things got way out of hand’ and ‘cancel it’.

The Sinistry

About the Artist

The Sinistry was founded in 2017 in London,  it is a visionary collaboration between artists Bert Gilbert and Izzet Ers, transcending traditional gender boundaries to engage in a creative and emotional dialogue. Gilbert’s energetic artwork decodes layers of subtext within conversations, while Ers responds with meticulous stitchwork and appliqué. Together they draw inspiration from Jungian psychoanalysis to explore the union of the male and female, a so called ‘syzygy’.

Their inaugural project, a series of genderless Liberation Suits, offer both the wearer and viewer visceral emancipation from conscious and unconscious realms. This collaboration exemplifies an amalgamation of mediums driven by a shared commitment to probing human connection and self-discovery. Working across mediums draws connections to Iterarte’s Variations project.
