Weaving

2020
june - sept Weeflab @ National Museum of Antiquities

Weeflab _ Amsterdam Noord
explores contemporary weaving with a focus on both
making and critical reflection, i.e. the weaver as the protagonist of our times.

Weeflab is based on:
A sustainable agenda and manual skills:
weaving on hand- and computer-controlled looms,
printmaking, material sensitivity and dexterity.


Weeflab is informed by a hybrid background of art and science:
spatial weaving and anatomy, layered prints and 3D growth,
textiles and tissue, grids and microscope.
