Some impressions of the Textile Art Space in INC-Art Fair Hamburg 2021

Here are some visuals of my presentation of 3 works from the D-Ring Projetc Muse series 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.

D-Ring Project Muse 1 :Exploring larger format…

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.

D-RING Muse , exploring larger formats

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!

D-RING Muse , exploring larger formats

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!

Notes & Sketches for The D-Ring Project, Muses in the City

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.

The first small collage (Déchirures/Tears) with embroidery for the D-Ring Project.

This project is about Berlin and my everyday journey in this city permanently under construction , permanently between.
