Description

In The Trip Collection Ines thinks on wool, exploring the colour and materiality of this material in graphic compositions that represent nothing more than her hand movements while intuitively doodling. She sees them as fast paintings that get painstakingly translated to thread; lines that belong to hand movements scaled up to textile tapestries. She compares the creation of these panels to going for a walk without destination.

This lack of rigour disappears when she start making, tufting them in her studio in Madrid with a yarn gun. The physical effort and focus, that this process requires, feels like a mantra to her. The sound and movement of the machine, the speed and tension of the yarn, and the hand drawn limits that mark the composition are what this symbiotic trip, between her, the material and the machine, is about.

Hand tufted with natural dyed Dutch sheep’s wool. Finished with “Latxa” wool from the Basque country in Spain.

About the designer


Inés Sistiaga is a designer, based between Eindhoven and Madrid, with a strong focus on textile techniques. Her work embodies different attitudes towards this field as a medium of research and expression, exploring visual and material languages through combinations of craft and technology. She develops explorations that go from functional to aesthetic and from technical to decorative, studying textiles as structural constructions, searching for functionalities and for the diverse in its materiality. This is done through techniques as varied as printing, weaving, tufting and, more extensively, knitting. These multiple paths converge, through the skills of her hands, in directions where function and beauty meet.

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
