Concept work

One hundred stained mops, are tied to each other, hanging and twisted to form a tapestry that alludes to the feminine and the daily cleaning of the home. Mops that are no longer white "clean": Absorbs instead of dirt, color. Then, as modules, they are saturating and wrap harmony, becoming a containment fabric ply.

Description Exposure 

"Since ancient times, textile art has been developed by different cultures and has transcended through the history of man, that you can admire the craft and the skill with which each piece has been performed. Today, this discipline coexists against the creations served using digital techniques and technology.

This exhibition brought together a group of artists who have excelled in national art to be renovators in textile art. They have experimented with slack ancestral paths that have been always present in the history of civilizations, but they have addressed the plot as latent gesture in their work.

Each has focused on rediscovering the broken textile to give a new look to the fibers, colors and materials, in order to communicate and express themself. These artists are able to deliver their own vision inherent in the development and technology, the beauty of the craft and delicacy of the handmade deployed to host a special value. "
