Der rote Faden – Follow the Thread

In the organizer's words:

The exhibition, curated by Jessica Gilles, the scientific volunteer at KIT, brings together four international artistic positions that deal with the material and ornamental dimensions of textiles in different ways. The starting point for all four artists is the combination of different working methods with textiles in contemporary art. The focus is on the material nature and formal language of the works, which are drawn from nature, culture and tradition. The works on display are partly designed specifically for the special tunnel architecture of the KIT. Some of the invited artists also work performatively.

During her research, initiated not least by her family's cultural and historical connections to Ukraine, Jessica Gilles came across contemporary artists who deal intensively with the historical and sociological backgrounds of textile art and implement them in a time-based manner. The artists' cultural roots are relevant here - memories, experiences, injuries and hope are part of the work process and unfold their effect on the viewer as a finished work.
