Samat's weaves transcend the world of cloth."- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "Anne Samat weaves magical textiles. A patch of her traditional Malaysian 'songket' is the pulsating centre of a large exoskeleton of rakes and chains, and it is sending out thick feelers of thread, like taut twitching muscles, to reign in, to 'hook' into the gallery's whitewashed skin. Samat's works are alive, migrating, melding and becoming. And this is where lies the secret to their charisma - the vertiginous swoop you experience going from the mundane to the celestial. Her songkets are no longer just fit for kings. They are adorned by gods. " - FaSa
