The light of the autumn sun reflected in the large sails of glass and steel that make up the building, located in the Bois de Boulogne in Paris. The eyes have to get used to the darkness that prevails in the room where the stars parade. Faces filmed in close-deliver messages of science fiction.

“The public is asked to sit in a place that does not exist yet, a vessel with a gigantic wooden (…) that serves as an incubator and stimulates creative minds,” set forth the faces . The parade starts with “The Sound of Silence” by Simon and Garfunkel, as of 1966.

Schreuders says she seeks to “subtly confuse notions of feminine vulnerability and reinforce the position of embroidery as an artistic medium.” Something I think we can all agree she has done masterfully.

She’ll have more work on view in Amsterdam next month at both “We Like Art and Amsterdam Drawing 2014”. Continue reading

It’s a fast-paced mise en abyme—a telescoped sequence Continue reading
