Lezing - Out of the box

MPJ_lezing_aankondiging
Mirjam Pet-Jacobs maakt eigentijdse, realistisch abstracte wandkleden, textiel objecten en (video) installaties. In 1989 is ze begonnen met patchwork, gebaseerd op eigen ontwerpen, en dertien jaar later ontwikkelde ze een eigen beeldtaal na het volgen van de eerste cursus Quilten Speciaal bij de SBA (opgegaan in Stidoc). Sindsdien heeft Pet-Jacobs naam gemaakt in binnen- en buitenland als vernieuwend art quilter.

In deze lezing vertelt de kunstenaar, aan de hand van enkele ijkpunten in haar werk, waar haar ideeën vandaan komen en hoe deze verwerkt worden. Ze heeft hierbij nooit de mainstream gevolgd, maar steeds haar eigen ontdekkingen gedaan. Een aantal ijkpunten van haar oeuvre worden ook getoond.

Pet-JacobsM_The Embrace(700)The Embrace, 2019

Earlier this year I made this soft sculpture inspired by Rembrandt's The Jewish Bride. My aim was to catch the texture of the paintwork and the over-all intimacy of this gorgeous painting. I have used a wrapping technique I developed for a workshop I had given at a primary school the year before. It was delightful to search in my stash of scraps, threads and yarns for the right colours and fabric qualities to make it as rich as possible. An interesting, very painterly technique, especially as I hadn't able to use my sewing machine and had to sit most of the time. Sometimes making the best of a situation offers opportunities to discover new approaches and constructions.
