The artwork ‘Endosis’ develops conceptual ideas and research developed over the past few years that investigate the flow from the everyday to the exotic and explore aspects of the 'poetics of noticing’ as referenced by Perec and Virillo commenting on the writings of Georges Perec. The work utilises the techniques of paper manipulation and the relations of images of materiality to the material object itself. The piece comprises three parts: a manipulated origami small garment work, a screen printed manipulated image of fabric and a flat screen print of fabric that together explore a narrative of the everyday being transformed in the exotic other. In the title ‘Endosis’ references the transformation of the endotic, Perec’s term referring to the infra-ordinary and the quotidian. The work was one of two works by Burton selected for the Fibremen 5 exhibition held in Kherson Ukraine in 2015. The Fibremen series of exhibitions curated by international textile artist and curator Andrew Schneider aims to bring together the most important international textile artworks created by men working in a fibre medium.
