MINIARTEXTIL

2017-06-02
The work of Zsófia Zámori in Como
MINIARTEXTIL

Miniartextil is an annual contemporary art exhibition, which showcases the very bests of textile art. The works submitted for the competition of the ARTE&ARTE organization were supposed to reflect the buzzword ’Borderline’ and were subject to strict rules. Alltogether 230 applicants participated, out of which 54 artworks were selected to the exhibition in Como starting in October. Stable Vs Unstable, work of Zsófia Zámori, our Fashion and Textile Design graduate   was selected to the expo. 

 

 

Zsófi told us about the competition:

"The minitextil category is fairly strict. This means that the work should not be more than 20x20x20 cm, it can be 2 or 3 dimensional, standing (not suspended) and not electronically connected). Another important rule was that the object was supposed to be creaded for this call and it should be connected to the buzzword ’borderline’. The works were sent on CD with a description and 3 photos. The jury decied based on these."

"I am very happy now as my work could live up to these high expectations and it was selected in an international competition which has a very long tradition."

Congratulations to Zsófi!

 

 

Stable vs Instable  -  desctiption of the artwork

size: 13x13x14 cm

material: sewing thread, wire

technique: sewing, individual technique

The main theme of my work is constant change and variability, reflecting both on the mood changes of borderline personality and on the different ways of perceiving the social and political significance of borders between countries. The piece, in its vulnerability, sensitivity and imperfection, represents a relationship with an established system. The constant presence of the possibility of change makes the system unstable. The cube is made both by needlework and machine sewing; its edges are stretched on a wire frame. The two parallel edges of the cube are curved towards and away from the straight line respectively via the bend of the wire, and that is why it is easy to shift the cube and end its stability. The stitches are slightly different on each side of the cube, yet the applied technique was the same. One of the sides is open so as to invite associations, such as dissembling, dismantling, collapse, imperfection…The cube is made both by needlework and machine sewing; its edges are stretched on a wire frame.
