Book: RADICAL FASHION EXERCISES
I am happy to be part of the book: Radical Fashion Exercises. The book contains a copious collection of bottom-up activities, prompts, and workshops designed by contributors (from all around the globe), who explore fashion in an extended field. Designers, curators, artists, educators, fashion practitioners, DIY home sewers, students, and other creatives responded to the book’s open call with contributions that challenge how to practice fashion and reflect on its systems, politics and economics.
The book will be part of Valiz’sSpring/Summer 2023 release, exciting!

Duo show with Charlotte Mumm at Whitehouse Gallery, Lovenjoel, BE
On the 7. September 2022, I arrived in Cairo for a 3-month residency program with Pro Helvetia. I decided to use the topic of increased pace of demolition of buildings in Cairo for the textile works. Besides that, I was working with several local artisans on knot carpets and sculptural works of palm wood. During the exhibtion Image Vehicles @Whitehouse Gallery, I will present for the 1.time in Europe the works I made in Egypt.

COLLECTIVE EMBROIDERY “AU BOUT DU FIL”
CREAHM is an atelier based in Fribourg, Switzerland that offers mentally and physically disabled people the opportunity to exploit their creative talents; to work in an atelier, to exhibit and sell artwork like any other artist. Creahm invited me to collaborate with 7 artists from the CREAHM (Pascal & Guy Vonlanthen, Jean-Yves Masset, Bernard Grandgirard, Rémy Vuillème, Emilie Frosio and Géraldine Piller). We created together a giant embroidery (5.2 m long and 1.5 m wide) on an embroidery machine in St. Gallen (CH).
