building “method of construction”

Dorte Behn 2013-03-07

From Tami

I am just discovering German textile artist Dörte Behn; and I’m floored.  Her workis in the collection of Victoria and Albert Museum – so I’m late to the fair – but her work is as if Mark Rothko and Carlo Scarpa got together and said – lets do a weaving.

“Weaving to me means a “method of construction” – next to architecture.” Dörte Behn

Image is from her Konstruierte Raume series Mehrfachgewebe, Leinen, 180 x 270 x 600 cm
Seen on her web site.
