threads, wools and textiles…

In the studio Ekaterina Kravtsova is making a work for the forthcoming Friday in F.R.A.C. show (Friday 23 September):

Kate has collected old clothes from local people she has known during the residency along with personal stories and memories related to those objects. Inspired by an ancient weaving technique, used in Russia to create carpets, she has shredded these clothes and  reassembled them in the form of mountains, a favourite place for the Biellese…

MEANWHILE…

Karolina Rychlik has been knitting In the Giardini in front of Esselunga in the centre of Biella for a period of time daily, all this week. She has been inviting passers by to stop and knit with her for a while and to help her create a textile that she will use in a dance performance as part of the Co-Lab event this 18 September in Palazzo Ferrero, Biella.
