Exhibition: The dialogue of the flowers

Internationally renowned quilter Elsbeth Nusser-Lampe has agreed to participate in this project: the exhibition shows Elsbeth’s quilts together with Afghan embroidery work inspired by them.

Her artistic style consists of floral work, although her intention is not to try and reproduce nature, but rather to evoke the feelings provoked by its creations. In this common project the challenge was to bring out the improvisational abilities of the Afghan embroiderers.

Elsbeth provided photos of some of her works, including close-ups, which were then distributed to a few carefully selected embroiderers through the care of Pascale Goldenberg, the coordinator of the Guldusi embroidery program.

The instructions given to the Afghan embroiderers: interpret the illustrations in the photos using your own hand stitching techniques.
