SPATIAL POETRY - a solo exhibition by Farkhondeh Shahroudi

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.

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

After winning the Tuscan leg of the first edition of PREMIO CAMBIAMENTI, we were chosen to be one of the 15th finalist to go to Rome to present our project in front of the national assembly of the CNA one of the largest Italian artisan associations. Tessa did an amazing job but we didn't win the final prize. Oh well, it was still a wonderful perfect experience.
