Old stage costumes given to me by a retired dancer let me reflect on the origin of textile art (patchwork) when old clothes / fabrics served as a basis for creation.
An old bedcover dyed by myself with leftover textile dye is used as background which is to be structured by the leftover costumes on stage. Why not add the words that inspired me to create? On the background partly torn, the remains of the costumes on stage are applied. Many of these costumes were made with organza of different colours so the colour intensifies when the fabric is melted.
