Textile Garden

Museum für Gestaltung, Zurich
Works by Barbara Levittoux-Świderska and Jagoda Buić are on view at Textile Garden, an exhibition that explores how textile artists radically expanded the possibility of their art from 1960 onward. 

Using sisal, wool, or maize they revived tried-and-tested culture techniques of indigenous peoples, always look-ing for a creative dialogue between material and technique. The woven or knotted works grow into space at a scale that is at times overwhelming, bursting open the boundaries between sculpture and environment. Top pieces from the two most important Fiber Art collections, the Fondation Toms Pauli Lausanne and the museum’s own Decorative Arts Collection, evoke associations with plants, flowers or weather phenomena and invite the public to immerse themselves in an atmospheric presentation.

The exhibition will be on view from 15 July–30 October.
