Geweven Geraamte
7,5m handwoven weaving work, lambswool, fishing yarn, embroidery floss, wood

‘Geweven Geraamte’ is a sculpture consisting of a 7,5m long handwoven weaving work. The work brings together Gottfried Semper's idea of the hanging textile as the prototype of the wall in architecture, with the late-Medieval architectural heritage of Amersfoort, and the cities forgotten textile industry. Events in the history of the city and how they have influenced its buildings are, as it were, pulled through the loom. The work is here presented in the dormitories of a former orphanage house, whose inhabitants were put to work in the textile industry.
