THE ALL WOVEN (2020)
organic cotton, organic sheep wool
60 x 170 x 65 cm
The All Woven is a textile work that is entirely hand woven. In order to transition from 2-D to 3-D weaving, Christin Amann created a new customized loom that was built specifically for this piece. In contrast to the industrial process of upholstery production, where the fabric must be woven, cut, sewn, and stuffed in order to achieve form and dimension, “The All Woven” is totally reduced to the process of weaving. It emerges seamless, without stitches, glue, or any other affixing agent, a perfect closed circle.
