CHAIN

My project for the FRAC is an object, which looks like mountains, the favorite place of the people who live in Biella. I made it from old cloths that I got from locals. Nature and fashion are
the main parts of the life here. Moreover cloths, is a witness of personal history, accumulate reminiscence. Many different personal stories are connected into fabric of space.
I was inspired by the habit that was in Russia, when ladies cut old dresses into strips, tied them to each other and made carpets. The handmade object became more than a useful thing for their
house. Row by row they could remember their life again and again.
Besides this process reminds forming of archaeological and geological layers of the earth and makes connection between nature and fabric more close.
