Project Body Textile Memory is dedicated to the exploration of natural rhythms of the female body and the objects and symbolic world that is related to it.
The project took place in two locations: in Ljubljana and in Izmir, at the International Triennial of Contemporary Art Port Izmir 3 in Turkey, curated by Saša Nabergoj.
Oloop designers and guest designers Solen Kipos and Mine Ovacik Dortbas from Turkey discovered and documented our own attitude and the attitude of other women (from Ljubljana to Izmir) to a variety of women’s topics that appear in women’s lives. Participants of the workshop Body Textile Memory created abstract textile pieces from the waste strips of jacquard industry, which become the material signs of their specific life stages. Unknown women of different ages, cultural backgrounds, religions created wild textile pieces. Through the textile they have been testify their personal story.
