Fuori dal Trecciato (Weave along)
A relationships project
by Tatiana Villani, Emanuela Baldi, Manuela Mancioppi.
Participatory performance and installation, 2015- still running.
Fuori dal Trecciato (Weave Along), from 2015, is a multi-level intervention, a micro-contamination of space, a device to weave mutual knowledge.
The participation made of normal gestures and weaving of industrial textile residues has been open to all. The process is still ongoing and involved a few hundred participants and various realities: museums, festivals, associations.
Hosted in various places, it has changed over time along with the various types of people involved.
The project started in Spring 2015 from the creative exchange among the three artists, who were invited by Artforms ( http://info-artforms.tumblr.com/ ) to develop site-specific artwork for its headquarters in Prato.
The artwork and the participatory process represent the intention of the three artists to extend their work from themselves towards the context and the people around them.
They decided to bind, to weave together materials and relations to generate a weft, a physical and emotional plot made by scrap materials and different shapes that as a whole will represent the sum of actions, thoughts, and stories of the people involved in the “making together” process.
Weave along was a participatory action that produced an installation. During the long terms performance, the artists created a piece made of rags and scraps, all materials coming from local textile industries. People were invited to participate in the action freely.
