nspired by the collaboration with Felicity Brown and inspired by Hassan Sharif, who called his artistic practice weaving, I have been working with textile material and textile production methods for a couple of years. In doing so, I make use of both basic craftsmanship and improvisation.
What fascinates me most about textiles is their material quality, the manifold possibilities of their creation and shaping, as well as their history and socioeconomic background.
Working with textile material goes back to one of mankind's oldest cultural techniques and was - and still is - made for and together with one another. In its history, women are the protagonists.
