Silverberg, Robbin Ami / Wustinger, Christiane: Knitting Poetry
Three tapestries depict imaginary calligraphic poems in Knitting Poetry; each is held in a paper wrapper with the black and graphite pulp-painted image of the hand gestures needed to accomplish the writing, gestures that are missing from the interlacing of two sets of threads at right angles to each other, which is the craft of weaving. Text imagery is created in the textile; the act of writing is suggested by an image within the paper.
3 black handmade sheets of papers, 3 small tapis, grey cardboard-box, 7.25 x 21.5 x 1.75 inch, Ed. of 4, New York, 1997, Dobbin Books
