About the exhibition
A textile journey by dutch designer and textile artist Peter George d’Angelino Tap. Where ancient wisdom and modern ecological philosophy converge. Inspired by Attar’s epic ‘Conference of the Birds’, Albrecht’s ‘Earth Emotions’, and the enigmatic verses of Erda in Wagner’s Ring, d’Angelino Tap leads us on an immersive odyssey through seven needle-felted metaphorical valleys, exploring the philosophical and emotional dimensions of the relationship between humanity and the environment.
Through d’Angelino Tap’s work, visitors are invited to contemplate these narratives, forging connections between ancient allegories and the pressing environmental concerns of our modern age. This exhibition is a powerful reminder of the need for deeper reflection, connection with nature, and collective action to address the challenges of our time.
Other highlights include:
Asphodel Meadows – tapestries and couture pieces reinvent a mythic paradise with vivid colors evoking seasonal change, while confronting pressing climate concerns through the spectre of the ash-filled fields of its Odyssean version.
