felt :: feutre canada member, Marjolein Dallinga (Bloom Felt) will be discussing the history of felt and in its emergence in contemporary culture at The Textile Museum of Canada on Wednesday June 13th. The lecture will focus on Marjolein’s artistic inspirations and the journey of her own work in felting. She will discuss her sculptural approach as well as her collaborations for theatre and performance, such as her costumes for the Cirque de Soleil and other theatre companies.
Marjolein other projects include SOFA Chicago; World of Wearable Art, New Zealand; and exhibitions in Australia, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, US and Italy.
Movement is an integral element in her work. In her practice, Marjolein shapes, sculpts, and folds fibres in order to create wool fabric.
She says, “It is from the dance of conflicting emotions that creativity and art are born. Though sculpture is usually perceived as static, I see it more as movement, the movement of wool from fibers into felt. And as long as there is movement there is life.”
