Körperbild III, IV

Körperbild III, 2021
Exhibitionview Amore
Textiles have served us as clothing for around 50,000 years, and offer us protection as (temporal) architecture and underground. Textiles describe the first step of humans into space. From this early manifestation grew the basis for today’s highly technological society. The work with carpets offers an opportunity to explore the emergence of form from a feminist perspective, especially with regard to the cultural-historical anchoring of textiles and their techniques I have been exploring weaving and textile. I’ve noticed that throughout our cultural histories, there have been close bonds between textiles, language, and the representation of our surroundings. This relationship has significantly influenced my own practice in recent years. It‘s as if the perception and understanding of the environment is embedded within the process of weaving, thus creating something far more complex and interesting than mere pictorial representation. 
Körperbild III an IV were exhibited at AMORE, Basel in late 2021.
