PATRICK RAMPELOTTO: MICRO MACRO

Patrick Rampelotto, Teppichgalerie Geba

28.9.–7.10.2018

It’s like looking into a rug through a magnifying glass: Patrick Rampelotto will take the innermost structure of a woven rug and transform the serpentine threads of the traditional Tibetan handmade product into a large-format meta-emblem. The weavers’ technical know-how is thereby turned into an eye-catching ornament through the designer’s appropriation. A magical rug whose soul is no longer a hidden secret. In accordance with the vision of Graz’s Teppichgalerie Geba and inspired by modern art and architecture, these rugs combine timeless modern designs and traditional craft art.
