Here are some visuals of my presentation of 3 works from theD-Ring Projetc Museseries at the Hamburg Art Fair (INC-Art August 26th to 29th 2021) .
The works were presented in the Textile Art Space curated by the Studio Beate & Celina von Harten (Vienna). A space presenting different positions and practices of textile art: woven paintings, textile sculptures, embroideries on paper, works experimenting in the field of vegetable dyeing…a rich and exciting scene!
I presented 2 embroidered collages : D-ring project Muse 1 and 3, as well as the Giant Cross Stitch Grid, made from the embroidered collage Muse 1.
Especially for the occasion, the fashion designer Valeria Piskounova (VLSH Studio) created a unique jacket for me from the printed canvas of my embroidered collage Muse 3.
Finally the Muse 1 tarpaulin is finished. It measures 200 cm by 150 cm. I don’t embroider everything, I wanted to leave the colours symbols generated by the transfer work of my original collage in cross stitch grid. I embroidered giant feather stitches to disrupt the regularity of the cross stitch.
Here I share some pictures of the small original embroidered collage (30x42cm)
And here are some pictures of the giant cross-stitch tarpaulin.
I needed more time for my experimentation with this large tarpaulin, here are some pictures and one video about the process from the last weeks.
I like the relationship with this format that goes beyond me. The work of embroidery becomes very physical, choreographic. I like the amplitude of the movements that lead the act of embroidering to that of performing.
I connect again to the embroidered performances I used to do a few years ago. A pure Joy!
In the last few weeks I have been working on larger formats from my collages.
At first I am working on the cross-stitch prints but I want to add other embroidery techniques like Lunéville crochet to give more texture and disturbance. See you in 2 weeks to see if it works the way I want!
Tears in the City: Rebuilding, Repetition, Introspection.
The stich, the stich, the stich. Extended time.
I filmed at the embroidery’s backside when I was embroidering my collage with the Lunéville ‘s hook. The invisible hook in a perpetual motion, perforating the paper. The hook and this repetitive sound of the stich.
