Labod’arte Ferrara

Sunday, July 26th, 2015

A 10 day residency/ workshop working with textiles in Ferrare for sessione Labod’arte, hosted at the beautiful Wunderkammer site with a view on the river Po. Nadia, Véronique and Patricia are the main participants with a few interventions by the kids. We worked with a minimum of equipment, sticking to the 3 colours: blue, black and with the following techniques: shibory, bleaching, silkscreening and cyanotype.
The aim was to explore and mix the techniques on a 50x70cm surface using objects from the surrounding to create an image.

Sewing for Céline

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

chorus_poster

For her solo CHORUS show, Céline Gillain needed a something to wear that would give her courage.

We decided to make a magical cape which would protect her and give her energy for her performance.

She opted for a dark turquoise neoprene and black lining, the print was designed by Harrisson, based on a painting of Justice from the Yale art gallery.
