Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering – department of textile and fashion design: Beyond borders
Fužine Castle park // until 28th June
OPENING: Friday, 31st May, at 21.30
Textile sculptures resembling natural shapes – nests that use vines to connect and grow with the mighty trees around the Fužine Castle – they all came to be in collaboration with a colourful local community that boasts many traditions, customs and living habits. The students have taken inspiration from the handiwork often used by the locals to stay in touch with their national and cultural heritage to create an entire company of hanging spatial formations that serve as a metaphor for the community of Fužine itself. /text: contributors/
