This installation, which Tanja Smeets created especially for “Abrasive Paradise”, uses techniques the artist developed during a research period in the Textilelab at the Textile Museum in Tilburg in the “Passement” department (collective term for decorative tape such as fringe, ribbon and cord). As a visitor, you are surrounded by various structures; plant-like apparitions, which become interwoven with the space in increasingly detailed layers. A fluid landscape of woven and knotted threads, like lianas in a jungle. The skin of these structures acts as a membrane between the installation and the architecture, and is richly detailed and seductive. Underneath , the landscape appears to lead an autonomous life, full of friction, sound and unexpected twists.
