Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Among the unprecedented diversity of the use of different materials in contemporary art, fibers have been able to present themselves as a branch of postmodern art. Producing artwork with fibers is important and has a rich history in all world cultures. However, until the modern era, the use of this artistic material was only possible in the context of handicrafts and applied arts and was not considered a part of fine arts. At the beginning of the 20th century, with the formation of postmodern approaches, a group of female artists in America stood against this type of division, and their activities led to this artistic material being recognized as a part of fine arts and entering new art museums. Considering this paradigm shift, this paper intends to answer the question of what capabilities sewing and fibers offer in visual arts, including installation art. And how can these features reflect postmodern components? To reach the unique capabilities of fibers in contemporary art, this article analyzes the works of several famous female artists in this field and tries to read the postmodern elements in their works. This research is of a qualitative type and descriptive-analytical, and the collection of information in it is by library method and document study. The result of the research shows that by removing the predetermined frameworks, a new window of the capabilities of fibers has been made available to artists, which has led to the creation of diverse works that have no direct precedent in the past and artificial arts. The most important of these features is the unique expression, the possibility of presenting and arranging the works in the form of installation art, the ability to communicate by touch, the presence of the work without intermediaries for the general public, and the possibility of the audience entering the work and the direct perception of the work of art by the viewer.
