I went to see Craigie Horsfield's tapestries at the
M HKA; it is hard to believe, but these huge textiles
were woven on a jacquard loom; it felt a bit like
looking at a 17th century old painting. Wow!
Have a look at Hermine's blog too; she has made
some beautiful pictures from the exhibition.
Have a nice weekend everybody :-)
By the way, the tapestries were made in a
small company in Flanders.

Ik heb dat wandtapijt van de eerste foto gemist denk ik. Die is heel erg mooi.ReplyDelete
Ben jij dat trouwens op foto nr° 2 ?
er hing maar een klein geweven detail van die foto; die twee mensen op de voorgrond, maar ik vond die foto heel mooi; ja dat ben ik; met mijn neus tegen het tapijt :-)ReplyDelete

Thanks for mentioning this exhibition! I am just working on the installation of a huge tapestry of Pae White, also made by Flanders Tapestries. Are you positive, that the hangings of Cragie Horsfield are woven on a Jacquard Loom? I had the impression that this company make "real" tapestries only and that would be a different loom and technique. Have to do some more research, I guess.ReplyDelete
Love your work and your blog!
