This bag is a part of a series of 24 bags. Each bag transforms into a small carpet. In my inner mystical space the owners of these bags can meet and collect the bags-carpets to unite all them into a big carpet and see the ornament in its entirety.
The design is inspired by a Pavlovo Posad shawl, enlarged to the size where giant pixels can be visible. I discovered that the whole layout consists of 4 colours and their combinations: blue as water, green as earth, yellow as air and red as fire. This is a proto-image of the four elements.
The inner part of the bag is made of leather. Outside there is a leather knot with an element of ethnic motive. The carpet surface is made in hand-tufted technique. The bag has enough space inside to fit an A4 sheet.
After taking out the inner bag, the clutch can be unfolded and opened into the carpet that can be used for a moment of contemplation, a moment to find some space inside yourself, to stay with any circumstances that life opens to you.
The artwork is created as a part of a joint art action with Irina Kireeva.
