to rock and roll stars past and present,

legendary ladies of song and screen

and some fab ads and famous firsts.

AND, for the first time ever in 3D,

using ChromaDepth technology,

she has produced a range of sweaters

paying homage to some of Lou Reed ‘s finest songs

and great masters in the world of art.

On Wednesday August 27th 2014

a rather unique show will open at the Serpentine Community Gallery

- "I'll be your mirror" -

a knitted tribute to Lou Reed

and the 40th anniversary of his first Australian tour.

The show is the result of a collaboration between

Mary Adams, a visual artist who now lives in Lismore,

and local photographer Katrina Mathieson.

Mary Adams and Katrina Mathieson

for over 40 years, producing hand loomed garments in pure wool

 using a range of images from popular culture.

50 sweaters representing Lou Reed albums and songs.

Photographs taken by Ms Mathieson
