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.
This textile Still life is the newest I created , and maybe the last one in this form.
It is made with bird’s wings found on the flea market and a vintage men jacket, it is composed of a branch of rose embroidered with glass beads ans cotton threads , scraps from glitter fabric and plastic, pieces of ribbons .
Yes it is probably the last one, the last still life . I want to extend the embroidery and the sewing techniques on a larger scale.
I may build bigger and larger textil still life for a wall or for a room, or the the city (like the D-Ring the Muses in the city project) by using bigger embroidery tools ( I have to build it ) and threads.
Anyway , I want to share images of The Messenger creation process.
I am fascinated and intrigued by the ex-voto as well as the Sacred Hearts from the 18th and 19th Century. Some use very complex craft techniques like embroidery made with hairs or beautiful bead embroidery mixed with delicate goldsmith work. I built The Messenger by remembering all that.
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.
