Textiles are versatile: they manifest in a variety of forms and translate or adapt into different environments.
Architectural spaces become embedded with the rituals and practices acting upon them, creating a cultural stereotype that does not necessarily align with architecture or interior design.
With a shift towards more flexible and adaptable formats demanded by modern culture, the ways of dwelling in both the public and private sphere appear to have become outdated: architectual practce can no longer reflect the morals or ideals of it’s time.
Starting from the conviction that the architectural space that surrounds the human body is one that ultimately influences its well-being, this space was created to communicate through matter the interiority that people feel within Spaces and Places. Allowing for liberation from common ways of facing a space.
Places in Between Nowhere and Everywhere is a fabric installation that speaks about matter and colour, linking the architectural space to the human body in a journey of layers and perspectives.
The different skins, (architectural, textiles, human) are all part of the same system of thing-shapes, a concept outlined by the architect Winka Dubbeldam.
Colour overlaps with memory; space changes experience; bodies merge with fabric. The installation asks the viewer to become more aware of themselves and of their surroundings.
