Anessas Appel (GRA 2003, Amsterdam)

Website :

In Appel's (1978) work, the artist focuses on phenomena, which have a system in themselves, or will lead to one. Her main concern involves the discovery of underlying structures in what is perceived. Her approach is a way of getting hold on how the world is constructed. Whenever the underlying structure, its systematic is revealed, a reinterpretation is applied. And in doing so, a new form is developed. The content will get another meaning.

Garment blankets

The seams of a garment are respectively drawn from the front, left and right and the back side. By realigning the seams horizontally and vertically in a straight line, a diamond square is being formed. By connecting these to one another and applying a form of repetition, a chequered pattern evolves. Each piece of garment will have its own check pattern, based on its seams. bra, cardigan, coat, dress, glove, handbag, hat, high heel, legwarmer, panties, scarf, shirt, shoe, short, skirt, sock, suspender, sweater, trouser and undershirt.

All of the 20 different patterns can be produced, on request.

Woven at the Textile Museum, Tilburg, the Netherlands.
