The project “Textile Discoveries” is the work of a group of 4 artists, led by Juliette Eckel. The textile language used, made of a combination of old and new techniques, will take you on a journey through a selection of 9 countries. Started in 2019, most of the work however, was created in 2020, during the quarantine linked to the coronavirus pandemic. During this period, the artists Juliette Eckel, Luise Ruckert, Barbara Hertel and Katharina Zeides made the trip alone from their homes. They only saw each other again in September during the presentation of the project at the Carrefour Européen du Patchwork in Alsace. The objective of the project was not to copy works of art from foreign cultures but to draw inspiration from their customs and their textile creation techniques in order to make original works.
