Description

Jeanett Knipschildt felted the long ‘arms’ of “OCTOPUS” from sustainable, 100% Merino wool and hung it around a recycled metal ring. Most wool parts, she dyed from natural wild plants from Denmark. The decorative right part is either yarn/strings/ cotton scraps and most parts have been carted and hand spun from leftover Merino wool and other leftover yarn. A recycled unique logo acrylic piece has been designed and sits within the wool. A black leather string holds the art piece.

Curated by

As Belgium is a small country without a very distinctive, nationalistic pride, artists and designers can work in complete freedom. There’s no higher purpose to be served. Creations can be the most individual expression of the most individual emotion. Thanks to this liberal creative climate – in combination with a strong, historical artistic tradition and qualitative art schools – Belgian art, design, and its collectors have gained international recognition for their avant-gardism. Besides, Belgium has always been a melting pot of different cultures, combining both German and Roman influences. This historical context gives designers the opportunity to colour outside the lines and outspokenly explore the borders between art, design, crafts, and industry. Strict typologies are left behind; rather, banal materials are transformed for a high-end context and meaningful stories are transmitted as an extra emotional layer. In doing so, these emancipated creations break out of traditional frames of reference, open up to everyone, and stand with both feet in our multicultural and multi-layered contemporary society.
