Elodie Blanchard "Fabrications" solo show at FIAF

From May 1 to June 1, 2019, award-winning French artist and designer Elodie Blanchard brings her signature vision and playfulness to the FIAF Gallery with a special exhibition "Fabrications", featuring four unique projects created with a wide range of textiles and stitching techniques as part of NYCxDESIGN.

Intricate felt masks, representing the breadth of human emotion, will be displayed next to a new large-scale wall installation specially created for FIAF using rare plastic textiles hand-knotted together. Her popular and colorful trees, which reuse scraps that the artist collects, create an enchanted landscape of nonsense. They provide a whimsical background for her soft furniture made with her manufactured woven upholstery fabrics, offering an inviting lounge-like experience to visitors.

Blanchard will lead two interactive workshops for families on Saturday, May 4 and Saturday, June 1 at 11:30am where kids will use recycled materials and threads to create their own colorful masks. Details here.

Curated by Courtney Gerarghty, FIAF Artistic Director.
