Name of the exercise: MYoD2-Bauhaus - Textures

 

What Anke says about her design:

In the exercise "Textures that Touch Your Soul" I should choose a topic that touches me emotionally and create a textile work with textures as the most important design element.

My textile collage "Distress at Sea" tells the story of a family fleeing from the horrors of the war in Syria and setting off in a rubber zodiac across the Mediterranean Sea towards Europe. This topic is - even though it has been widely ignored by the media due to the Corona crisis in the past months - unfortunately still very relevant. Only last week a boat carrying refugees sank off the coast of Tunisia, many of the victims were women and children.

In my collage, there are more than 20 different pieces of fabric of clothing, but also materials that can be found on board an inflatable boat or later on the beaches, where the remains of the tragedy are regularly washed up
