Memories in textiles are present in the material itself that comes from nature or is artificial, but the path to its creation is long and complicated. Textile structures, their colors and patterns are the fruits of creative imagination, tradition and science. They’re like sparks of cultural and technological advancement, like a beam of light that enters the room through an open door and illuminates the figures of yet unseen shapes in our thoughts. The participants have transformed the archetypal textile forms, obtained with manual techniques of felting, knitting and embroidery, into a new original whole as a poetic reflection of the modern world. /artists/
