HAND in HAND
The exhibition HAND in HAND
“Hand in hand”. Hands … give, take, ask, pray, speak, show, greet, care for, pamper and much more. They are violent and delicate, they can be artistically designed, they create art.
In German, the term HAND in HAND can stand for a term that does not exist in either English or French. This can mean that someone has started something that is being continued or completed by a second person.
In this case, the title fits perfectly with the embroidery program, the concept of which envisages an Afghan woman starting the creative work and a European continuing it.
Another possibility of understanding is the usual one with the other languages: you tackle something together, strive for a goal together.
The exhibition “Hand in Hand” presents 47 textile works, each with an area of 0.6 m². Each design integrates at least one embroidered hand from Afghanistan, thus forming collaborative works, a bridge between cultures.
HAND in HAND is the latest exhibition of the Guldusi embroidery program.
