Pavilions(Gunta, Anni, Otti & Benita) 2014

details

[Tapestry-woven nylon mason line and synthetic yarns, plexi-glass, plywood, and aluminium panels]

Borowska’s tapestry maquette tributes to four women of the 20th century Bauhaus weaving workshop pose some innovative questions about design: where does the architectural end and textile begin? What counts as "structure", and what can and cannot be built in full-scale? The weavings involve synthetic as well as traditional materials as homage to the experimentations of artists such as Gunta Stölzl and Anni Albers. The textiles incorporate slits that notch them into the plexiglass, aluminum and plywood panels, permitting the materials more associated with the feminine and the domestic to self-support while retaining soft and draping elements. Partially unraveled, and able to shift and change shapes each time they are taken apart and reinstalled, the structures gesture to a more dynamic and fluid relation between gendered experience and its spatial possibilities.
