Galerie Momogusa in Tajimi (Japan) presents the interesting exhibition “Life of Handwork”. Among the selected artworks Clothes of grass, by Sissi Castellano, puts linen on stage! It’s a small collection made with bast fibers, in particular European flax, woven on hand looms or old mechanical looms. Moreover fabrics, if coloured, are dyed with vegetable dyes.
“This collection is the result of a reflection on the many elements that contributed to the creation of these objects: nature, craftsmanship and its slow rhythms, the physical dimension of manual tools, old shapes and their essential nature, and parsimony in use of precious colours.”
