Exhibition on the use of new materials in craft related design , initiated by gallery 'Lous Martin', travelled on to gallery 'Reversos dos Bernardos' in Lisbon, Portugal.
My work in 3D weaving - embryologic objects had been selected.
' The combination of material, function and form is paramount in most of the selected work. This is the well known concept and strength of Dutch Design. The exhibition demonstrates the cross-pollination between the various disciplines like textiles, interior design and jewellery design. A small number of pieces deal with material for the sake of it's own expressiveness, separated from all possible functionality. Any thoughts about the material or even the question as to who made them are of secondary importance. They are above all imbued with a sense of beauty and are therefore - beyond material, indeed.'
