Spatial Poetry

Farkhondeh Shahroudi

Villa Romana fellow 2017

First solo exhibition curated by Alessandra Tempesti

25.05.2017 – 18.06.2017

Lottozero / Textile Laboratories presents the first Italian solo exhibition by Farkohondeh Shahroudi, an Iranian artist living in Berlin for over twenty years. With a series of recent works created during her prizeresidency at Villa Romana in Florence, the artist shapes a poetic narrative with her three-dimensional creatures, made of cloth and sewn by hand. Sculpture, installation and poetry are the languages through which she has developed a multifaceted, polyphonic body of work throughout the years, nourished by past and present history, in a social and personal, intimate and political dimension.

FASHION REVOLUTION Fair

Fair for quality fabrics and sartorial craftsmanship for the comeback of sustainable consumption.

Fashion Revolution: who made my clothes? I chose it myself!

There is a certain pleasure in recognizing something that was well done. It is better to have less of something good that a lot of bad things.
It's time to rediscover Italian production, the value of labour, made to measure, handmade and the quality in textile production and tailoring in general.
At this fair you'll be able to see tailors and designers at work, buy fine fabrics, seek advice or commission a bespoke piece on the spot.

With the presence of the tailors and designers
