Rag bag is a daisy-shaped extruded stump made out of walnut that comes out of the wall on an angle. Nailed on to the end of the daisy are layers of hand woven and hand dyed silk and stamped paper.

Anne Low is based in Montréal, Canada. Her practice includes sculpture, installation, textiles and printmaking to investigate how particular expressive forms are able to unhinge themselves from historical contingency and speak to contemporary subjects such as the domestic, the decorative, utility and taste. Her works speak to wider narratives around the impulse to individuate object and self and how the impulse to decorate is a desire that extends through history. Recent solo exhibitions include Bletting, Franz Kaka, Toronto (2019), Chair for a woman, Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2019), Paperstainer, Mercer Union, Toronto (2018); A wall as a table with candlestick legs, Tensta Konstall, Stockholm (2018) and Witch with Comb, Artspeak, Vancouver (2017). Recent group exhibitions include Art Encounters Biennial, Timisoara (2019), Sobey Art Award, Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton (2019); Soon Enough – Art in Action, Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm (2018); Separation Penetrates, Mercer Union, Toronto (2017); Dream Islands, Nanaimo Art Gallery (2017); Ambivalent Pleasures, Vancouver Art Gallery (2016) and Reading the Line, The Western Front, Vancouver (2015). Her collaboration with Evan Calder Williams, The Fine Line of Deviation, has been exhibited at Mercer Union, Toronto (2018) and Issue Project Room, New York (2016). Low was a finalist in the 2019 Sobey Art Award.
