detail of "Mimiquilt II: Ancestral
Exhibition concept in the St.Gallen Textile Museum
Owing to the great diversity of the works, the decision was made to exhibit the quilts according to the techniques used in their creation to the greatest possible extent, with the prize-winners being the exception to this rule. This means that overlaps cannot be avoided. Since the works were also intended to constitute a certain optical unity, they were also grouped according to forms and techniques.
the quilts created by the three prize-winners
(Mirjam Pet-Jacobs, Karen Fleming, Friderun Heil) are to
be seen in the staircase.
visitors cross the exhibition hall from
the left to the right, they will find a further
"play on colours" (Erika Odemer), computer
printing (Rita M. Lerch, Dirkje van der Horst-Beetsma)
and photo transfer (Jutty Briehn). These are followed by
works with painting, printing techniques, monotypie and
screen printing (Agnes Bockel, Andreas Grigoleit, Beate
Ruberg, Rosie Francis, Gisela Hafer).
The 39 quilts are supplemented by works by two adjudicators (Olga Prins-Lukowski, Ursula Rauch).
