What is the story behind your work? What stories, memories or traditions are intertwined into it? With the open call ‘Draad’ ('Thread'), Kunstwerkt & Texture are looking for visual artists who use textiles in their work. They are searching for textiles in the broadest meaning of the word. Slide your story ahead with ‘Draad’.
Whether you stitch your drawings, incorporate threads in your sculpture or if you are a textile artist pur sang. Whether you are a photographer with a fascination for fabric folds, a video artist who makes flags wave or a painter inspired by a special tablecloth.
And we could go on, because textiles are everywhere. The main message: is there a link to textiles in your work? Participate in Draad!
Submit your work via the online platform Beeld until 12 November 2023.
The three jury members (Han Decorte, Indre Svirplyte and Benjamin Navet) will consider all online submissions at the end of November. Early next year, they will bring their favourites together in the group exhibition at Texture in Kortrijk.
Is this your challenge for the upcoming months?
