ORDER OR CHAOS: WHAT IS THE BOUNDARY ?
7th International Triennial of Mini-Textiles
18. Juni - 07. September 2003
For the fourth time in Angers, the contemporary tapestry museum was organising and holding the international triennial of mini-textiles. The chosen theme proposed to the artists was : "Order or Chaos: what is the boundary ?"
Each artist has
presented a piece of work made of thread, or the
impression of thread, of which the dimensions must not
exceed 12 x 12 x 12 cm (surface or volume).
508 candidates from throughout the world have competed. They sent two different slides of their work, which a jury viewed last April. The jury was made up by four persons. They had the difficult task to make a selection out of all the pieces sent to Angers.
69 works have been kept back. The majority of the participants are European : French, German, Dutch, Polish, Italian etc but they also come from the USA, Latin America, Australia, Japan
It is the first time, that this exhibition can be shown in Switzerland. The Textilmuseum St. Gallen, Switzerland is very proud that it got the special opportunity to show these works in its rooms.
|This Triennial, through these small
works of art, provides an update on todays
contemporary creation, with contacts ranging from well
known artists to lesser known or completely unknown
artists all from different generations.
An exhibition catalogue as well as postcards are available
