Kristina Skantze Non Mythological Creatures - Fiberspace Gallery

Non-Mythological Creatures 2019 © Kristina Skantze

Kristina Skantze sculpts human-like fabric beings through careful and persistent hand stitching. The seams that shape the body parts are important and appear as lines, scars stretching the skin of cloth. Textile flesh shaped by millions of visible and invisible stitches, subdued pastel silk jersey and polyester padding. Experiences are sewn into the bodies, into the artist’s own bodily memory as well as into the limbs of the figures.
