About the designer


Geneviève Levivier

Geneviève Levivier’s approach combines the sensibilities of a contemporary visual artist with personal innovative technologies, evidenced by her laboratory-like studio employing a chemist for R&D. By mixing the artistic gesture, organic materials, pigments and eco-friendly self-invented paint binders and bio-sourced fibres, Levivier defends a creation freely inspired by a mix of textile know-how and pictorial techniques. As a designer,  as well an artist, Geneviève Levivier is fascinated by the textile as a contemporary medium for its possibilities of movement, flexibility, interaction with space and light, as well as with the body, touch and sight. She creates her textile works - the material itself of the textile, as well as the texture, the effects and the meaning of it -  according to a place and a theme, to bring a dialogue between her Tapestries, the surrounding culture, architecture, and the light. Therefore, Synesthesia is a notion that inspires her and that she amplifies in her current work, such as in her \"Eggshell Alchemy\" artwork , soundly placed in the perfect environment - with bird\'s song or wind blowing...

Curated by

Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making. The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
