Vlisco simply rainbow bright

First of all i must say that i am so proud and happy to witness and be a part

of the history and the to watch the flourishing of dutch wax VLISCO.

Heel moi( very beautiful in dutch ­čśë

For me i feel that their fabrics symbolizes so many virtues about life, self expression and achievements.

They strive for perfection, work deeply in detail, and execute with breathtaking finishes.

Having a piece of Vlisco is having a piece of history.

I had so much fun, having to be a Vlisco roll at the Vlisco factory together with Margot Van Essen, Photograper Thomas Mailander.

Was so cool to get the chance and see how its all done, and the people who work there are soo sweet!

I think its so sweet that you have some artist,

who take time to paint or to draw images of the things that they love

To express their thought and piece of mind. I found this sweet image by this artist,

and simply had to share it.

SIX YARDS exhibition

From the 29th of January through 6th of may 2012 i went and saw a beautiful exhibition

about Vlisco┬┤s history in MMKA ( Museum Modern Kunst Arnhem) about how Vlisco┬┤s Dutch textile became a part of various Wwst African cultures and found their way into international fashion, the visual arts and photography.The exhibition Six Yards is a tribute to Vlisco.

It was so nice to be there and all the details where really nice. So many ancient pieces of fabric sqeezed between two glasses in a frame or elegantly hung up for display.

Yinka Shinobare egg fight

The provocative installation Egg Fight (2008) is based on themes from Gullivers┬┤s Travels by Jonathan Swift.

The work was inspired by the protracted quarrel between the fictional kingdoms of the Lilliputians and the Blefuscu over a particular ┬┤religious┬┤ question should hard boiled eggs be broken at the big end or the little end? Swifts book is a satire on the customs at the court of King Georg 1 and the struggle between the Catholics big (big end) or the protestants (little end) for religious dominance.
