Textile Garden – Cords, yarns, and threads: these are the raw materials used by international textile artists who radically expanded the possibilities of their art from 1960 onward. Using sisal, wool, or maize they revived tried-and-tested culture techniques of indigenous peoples, always look-ing for a creative dialogue between material and technique. Top pieces from the two most important Fiber Art collections, the Fondation Toms Pauli and the museum’s own Decorative Arts Collection, evoke associations with plants, flowers or weather phenomena and invite the public to immerse themselves in an atmospheric presentation.
