Fate, Destiny and Self-Determination/Le Sort, Destin and l’Auto-determination is a tapestry installation generously funded by the Ontario Arts Council and co-created by people all over the world. Composed of three sections, it was designed and managed by Line Dufour, who wove the first panel  measuring 5’ x 3’ and exemplifies the  contemporary practice of tapestry weaving, where artist and weaver are one and the same. The second panel, measuring 5’ x 18” was woven by visiting participants ranging from the inexperienced and amateur to the professional. This referenced traditional tapestry conventions in that many weavers worked on the tapestry at the same time or at various stages and did not contribute to creating  the tapestry designs. I documented those who wove this section both in pictures and video and as the project progressed, She keeps participants updated via Facebook, Instagram and emails.

The final section is composed of irregular shapes positioned  at varying heights, between the 2 main panels, floating freely in space, as though the tapestry is pulling apart or coming together.  As each shape arrives, Dufour photographs/documents it, posts it to the Facebook page for the project www.facebook.com/pages/Fate-Destiny-and-Self-Determination-An-international-tapestry-project/ Each shape is also posted on Instagram @tapestryline and Twitter @tapestry_line. Information about the participants such as their website if they have one, and other comments they have made about the project or about their work and/or life on the Facebook page. Thus far, 830 completed shapes have been received from 42 countries, and a total of about 499 people have participated in the entire project thus far. The installation continues to expand and build community as it accepts  shapes on an ongoing basis. The list of all participant names are included in each exhibition.
