'How the world slowly started to turn pink' (the extended version)@ Salon/2

Salon/2 is the sixth edition of Salon/ in Amsterdam city.
More info on Salon/ ---> <---

And I am happy to announce that I show my work 'How the world slowly started to turn pink' at Tesselschade Arbeid Adelt, Leidseplein 33, as part of Salon/2.
This specific shop at the Leidseplein, is a place which makes it possible to see conventional handmade embroideries and crafts in the shop downstairs.
And maybe the opposite, freestyle embroideries of mine, can be seen upstairs in the exhibtion space of the house during the event.
Besides that a I show traditional haute couture embroideries in the window. It represents a next step in my research, of how the traditional techniques I learn at the famous embroidery school I attend in Paris, can be used in a different free form way.
This all as an extension of the installation upstairs.

Salon/2 opened july 1 and runs till the 17th of july at different places along the city. (for more info and tickets see the website)

Tesselschade Arbeid Adelt will be open weekdays between 11-17.30 and during weekends 11- 17
closed on monday.

Today's news: Opening WinterSalon/ Amsterdam

WinterSalon/ opened today it's doors!
Till the 6th of february on 6 locations in Amsterdam city there is work shown from over 30 designers, artists and photographers.
for more information and tickets:

‘In the summer of 2010 I started a part time training at the school of a famous haute couturehouse. I now completed 3 out of the 10 modules. Ever since I was a child I am fascinated by manually making clothes and embroideries. Gradually I got more specialised in this hand moderation, particularly in the unorthodox way. I now learn the techniques in accordance with the classic, traditional haute couture rules.

In my presentation at the Winter Salon/ I show the research I am doing of the way the new techniques I have been thaught are getting integrated in my own work.’

Cars parked in the streets in Eindhoven
city were transformed into amorphous
objects that entered a relationship with
the street furniture and environment.
This approach prevented the identifica-
tion of the brand of car underneath
and, in addition, these soft object forms
changed the experience of the space for
the public.
