About clouds on a former island


Construction: a cloth of 9m x 9m, fastened with ropes to bollards

The clouds, the vast silent landscape and the abandoned former island are the sources of inspiration. The towels are sewn in a former artproject by women in the province of Zeeland (Handkerchiefs drying in the Wind, 2012). For this work the towels are sewn together to a big square cloth. Depending on the wind, it became a bowl or a huge sailcloth in the wind.
