Just found a website on a coming exhibition in St. Peterzell, Feldkirch, Austria. An artist, Lucia Feinig-Giesinger, in cooperation with women from Bosnia created art quilts of simple beauty. The artist arranged the tops, the Bosnian women did the sewing and quilting. Click the small grey squares to see them all! The title of the exhibition is "Vernaehte Zeit", "Time Sewn Up", because the women were in a refugee camp and hat a lot of time.
This is the website of Lucia. It is also in English, and there are very moving black and white photos of the women in action. As these quilts are for sale, I dare show two of them.
Lucia Feinig-Giesinger: " I wanted no pity story. The interest for these fades within half a year. I'd prefer people to come for beautiful quilts and hear about the reasons why they were made. They were made for a sad reason. But the message is that something bad can be the soil for something amazing to arise."
