Last of the pillow photos for now; they should arrive in the next couple of days in Vienna at MN*LS. The rabbit is a left over from the old series of critters made some time ago; now there's only smithereens left of the blue tablecloth....
This little pillow is made from the last scraps from the same blue tablecloth as the previous pillow, and this one too is on its way to MS*LS in Vienna as I type this, for the exhibition opening later this month.
Similar to some of the patchwork urns, I used the existing label from the tablecloth and added it to the pillow next to my own label.
As for the previous ones, the extract from the press release says;
'Using old 2nd hand woven tablecloths found in Danish thrift stores the pillowcases display, on one side, the original pattern of the unaltered tablecloth, and on the other side, a new pattern resulting from manipulated the fabric. This way the old cloth has been given a new function and a new visual identity moving away from the traditional Scandinavian 1950's designs towards a more exotic look.'
