Mera Talking Textiles...

På trendtablet.com finns en avdelning för Talking Textiles, där man också kan läsa mer om utställningen i Stockholm. Där hittade jag också detta projekt som såg spännande ut. Så här beskrivs det;

"Penelope", a recent exhibition by Tatiana Blass, is a storied installation. Borrowing its name from Greek myth, "Penelope" is a tribute to the power of love and the praxis of weaving.
Built to fill the Chapel of Morumbi in São Paulo, Blass has displayed a large pedal-loom at the altar. Attached is a intricately woven, red carpet that extends to the courtyard; red, to signify both power and nobility, as recounted in Greek legend.
Blass’ installation aims to connect the internal and external worlds of belief through a web of tangled wool, yet it is unclear whether the carpet is in the process of being woven or unraveled (as goes the tale of Penelope).
On the opposite side of the loom, the threads run wildly; a matrix of red yarn envelops the exterior gardens, further confounding our perception of space and place. Merging the religious with the architectural and the enigmatic, Blass is deeply interested in “the abstract.” She conceals as much as she reveals, blending complex stories with elaborate textile creations.
