Bringing manual work, inside the textile industry using artisanal
knitting as a technical tool to create a comparison between the handwork
and the machine work.
At the same time to share life and work conditions with those who
work in the textile factory: Lana Gatto, Tollegno.
The installation becomes an excuse: the process and all that it implies
acquires a greater value. It allows me to experience the problems,
the positive and negative aspects of working in a textile factory,
by sharing time, space and experiences with the women who work there.
Through this comparison my artisanal work meets their machines work.
Working with the fabrics produced by the machines, I reuse their wasted
material: my efforts is to reverse the industrial process by cutting
and tie up the fabrics with the Macramè technique for making
an installation inside the manding department.
