PATRICK RAMPELOTTO: MICRO MACRO

Patrick Rampelotto, Teppichgalerie Geba

28.9.–7.10.2018

„A magical rug whose soul is no longer a hidden secret.“ Graz’s Teppichgalerie Geba used these auspicious words to announce the textile work of the festival classic regular Patrick Rampelotto. And they came true! It’s like looking into a rug through a magnifying glass: Patrick Rampelotto took the innermost structure of a woven rug and transformed 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. Absolutely!
