Looming is a moving sculpture of circling shapes. The stretching textile material is processed into a lightweight construction. The person wearing the sculpture enters into a dialogue with the floating circles. The work investigates the scope of the human body and its effect on the surrounding space.
The loom is a moving construction, the cadence measured by the beat of weaving repeated patterns.
It’s like life: a flow of change, but there is always cohesion. Inspired by circular shapes in nature such as the consecutive seasons and the rhythm of day and night.
The work represents a balance between stillness and the ever-accelerating speed in which we are moving forward. In the movement research of the wearer, the most beautiful forms arise intuitively. Organically developing from a flat circle into a multi-layered spiral. The imagery is poetic: a flower unfolding its petals, the transformation from caterpillar to butterfly, the peacock dancing his mating ritual.
Looming is a sculpture performance, and also exists as video, photo work and in drawings.
The neo-classic music is composed live by Mink Steekelenburg (Winterdagen). Recycled material has been used for the sculptures.
