First: Happy New Year to everyone! Let us make the best of 2022, Corvid or not!
In 2018 I was invited by Juliette Eckel to become part of the Texnet 2 group.We are an international group of 20 textile artists from Europe, Canada, Australia and USA. For more than 2 years we have been working together on a project, a «textile calendar», communicating on Facebook and getting to know each other better through our work. The result is an extraordinary exhibition with 365 artworks of the sizes 15 x 15, 32 x 15 and 32 x 32. Additionally a second calendar was created by 12 of the artists who did large pieces of 90 x 150 cm for the twelve months. We chose dates and our own theme. My works are all, in one way or another, based on the words of Jon Fosse.
We first exhibited our fabulous project at EPM France, @ European Patchwork &Textile Tour Alasace France in September 2021. In May 2022 our exhibition will be shown at the Nadelwelt in Karlsruhe.
Throughout the year I will present my contribution, first January :
January 7th. «Nothing», 15×15 cm.
Is about a big and white nothing, see nothing hear nothing.
and January 23rd: «The snow that was», 32×32 cm.
About standing under a lamp post watching the snow fall.
It is impossible for me to translate Jon Fosse’s poetry so I will present what triggered my inspiration.
