Willbrand, Carola: Aus der Fadenlese
1. thread - to be close to the fabric of which the world is made.
2. a textile is basically nomadic, easy to transport like suit bags with zippers that you put over your arm. They are illustrations of the nomadic nature of textiles.
3. I believe that picture weaving, that is, a kind of transportable wall painting, has a new future in terms of art.
4. thoughts can be traced back to the event of thread. 5. knotting, braiding, intertwining - all these interrelated techniques require hardly any tools, except perhaps a stick, a clapper to pick up the innumerable threads, and perhaps another stick as a measuring instrument to ensure the uniformity of the work. All of these techniques allow for unlimited textiles.
Points 6 and 7 contain a reflection on the unlimitedness of textiles and their ease, limited only by reason and utility.
Excerpt 8: Together with cave paintings, threads are the earliest transmitters of content.
9. it is not a question of breaking with the past (modernity), but the simultaneity of the old and the new. The ancient techniques revitalize the contemporary experience.
