Video from the performance
And a nice text by Hanne Hegennars for Mister Motly magazine https://www.mistermotley.nl/alles-zien-alles-voelen-sjamanen-de-stad/
Textile pattern printed on bamboo and cotton. The dresses are a combination of sports wear and an imaginary shaman clothes with headbands and other flying wings peaces of fabric.
This event is a living dream of a free man in the city, beyond conventions, performed by parcour athlets in the city centre and confection stores. While Im also using the language of textile, knowing the rules of normality, extending its borders by untipical happening.
The pattern is reflecting the discussion on city life and its his/harmonical aspects that we had with athlets since every shaman wears the atributs from his tribe area, our city shaman standing between technology and soul is therfore looking this way, free in the city, jumping over borders yet aware of its rules, an healing inspiring attempt to extend the anxious concentions;)
