Woven Skin is organised by Studio Claudy Jongstra and presented by presented by Past Forward / Villa Valguarnera.
The project embodies three essential elements – ecology, colour, and community – promote biodiversity, cultural heritage, and social inclusivity through communal workshops, personal contact, and open dialogue. Woven Skin will travel on a two-year international tour. In each location, it will “plant a seed,” a philosophy, a mode of production, a vision, with the potential to thrive long after the sculpture itself has left.
CLAUDY JONGSTRA (Roermond, 1963) creates art pieces and architectural installations of hand felted and woven natural fibres. The beauty of nature, raw materials and the exploration of ancient crafts such as spinning, carding and weaving constantly inspire Jongstra’s work, which brings a sense of beauty and belonging to dwellings and public spaces. In addition to working with architects and clients for large mural installations around the world, in the past 25 years Claudy has been building an impressive oeuvre of her very coveted and unique tactile works of art.
