The Sound of Fabrics is a group exhibition centered on textiles as a medium. The participating artists each reframe and revalue artisanal-traditional artistic techniques in their own way, using the materiality of textiles to shape personal, historical, or speculative narratives. Embroidery, weaving, knitting, and painting anchor words into textiles, creating a space where different stories can be read. These techniques, borrowed from folk culture traditions, enable a form of knowledge transfer that goes beyond the meaning of words themselves, activating their discursive potential.
