Kimatu

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

Kimato , means the birth of a new sprout.The dress is a structure to create spaces and provoque a disturbing feeling.With movement, instability and fragility.The threads represent relationships and the fate with the other.They become bridges and barriers.

INSPIRATION

The “Fibre Arts” movement. More specifically, on two of their artists, Beili Liu and Chiharu Shiota. The former speaks about an ancient Chinese legend that states that at the moment of birth, red invisible threads contect us with those we are destined to live with. The latter creates her own spaces in her installations.

MATERIALS USED

I have used a Bucaran Interlining to create Kimatu, both for the most fragile, voluminous parts and the “walls” through wich the read threads communicate with each other.These “walls” are made of various layers of glued interlining and wire.And red crepe in two of the pieces.
