FIBER ART

I began to take an interest with the Fiber Art artistic current, about 30 years ago on the occasion of the first edition of ‘ Textilia ‘.
Since then I’ve been following the evolution of the movement, I visited its exhibitions in Italy and in Europe, I have personally known its artists wherewith I have established good long-term friendships. I have published articles,
presentations, brochures and I have been a member of juries.
The Fiber Art is a contemporary art’s tendency which brings together the researches based on textiles production methods and/or on textile materials, interpreted in their physical or conceptual representations through: weaving, panels, sculptures, immersive installations, photo-collages, videos, projections and performance. Today – that Internet revolution changed the society, the languages and the ways of designing – even the Fiber Art opens up to new experiments.

FIBER ART ITALIANA un intreccio virtuoso

 

A book that, for the first time, reconstructs the history of the Italian movement, the debate about its definition, the international and national context in which the Italian Fiber Art had acted, the reporting of the main exhibitions held in Europe and in Italy. The heart of the book consists of about sixty artists’ profiles with numerous color images. An in-depth and exciting reconstruction that finally allows us to outline, make known and appreciate an artistic movement in which the idea has never prevailed over the work, the concept of realization, but importance has also been given to the act of doing, to the subject, to the research of beauty and sensory involvement. Furthermore, if the book is currently in Italian language, everyone can appreciate the Italian movement through the numerous images.
