My life is a mirror of threads
Tapestry Wall is a large woven textile artwork that can be placed in room to divide it as a soft wall, with images on both sides. The shape is created as a contemporary edition of the classic woven tapestry (or woven wallpaper) that where highly fashionable for kings and queens in the 15th and 16th century Europe to communicate important local history and value through archetypal symbolic textile images.
Europe has amazing textile-traditions but not many productions are still kept alive today.
Within all of my textile works I aim to preserve and shine light on the beautiful traditions and tecniques.
My Tapestry Wall´s are developed with a highly modern digital Jaquard loom at the dutch workshop: Textil Lab.
