Kustaa Saksi

From 24 April 2014 till 2 November 2014
the TextielMuseum’s TextielLab in Tilburg/Holland presents the work of Finnish graphic designer Kustaa Saksi (1975) in the new Highlights exhibition. Saksi realised ‘Hypnopompic’; a series of eight vivid large-scale tapestries. Hypnopompic means the dreamlike state of consciousness filled with illusions that can occur between waking and sleeping. The brightly coloured pieces combine recognisable creatures and organic designs with surreal visualisations. A wide range of natural and synthetic materials, from viscose, lurex and metallic yarns, to alpaca wool and mohair, add extra depth. The wall hangings on display have all been developed and produced in the TextielLab. Wonderful!
