Turkish Red

Turkish Red was an exhibition running in Tilburg Textile Museum and was curated by Caroline Boot. She invited artists and designers to look over the museums archives and take inspiration for this new exhibition. When researching for inspiration to develop my dissolvable fabric samples. This piece by BCXSY caught my attention.

BCXSY Amsterdam-based interdisciplinary cooperative between designers Boaz Cohen and Sayaka Yamamoto. This piece was created as part of the “Changing Perspective” collection which was a series of table-linens consists of a table-cloth, table-runner and placemats, accompanied by napkin-rings with attachable letters. I was really drawn to the delicacy of the piece and the shear beauty of it. The over hanging stitch highlights the detailing of the flower and the white on white makes the stitch a more subtle detail rather than a bold design. After creating my initial dissolvable piece I really want to capture the delicacy that BCXSY have in their pieces. I could use this idea to create delicate stain glass windows inspired by the cathedral. I plan on going back up to the cathedral to gain more drawings and inspiration so I will look for inspiration for a dissolvable piece.
