Obese Door / Voluptuous Door

20 meters of Divina fabric were used to build a diversely layered, flexible, heavy, freestanding slab, called a lardboard - a chimaera of door and curtain. Each of the seven layers was embroidered with a line grid as a reference point for the rest of the stitching. Then starting at one end, the layers were sewn through from top to bottom over and over again, a process a little like sewing together the pages of a book.
Doors conceal layers but are covered with a closed surface which presents as a massive homogenous material. There´s a beauty in the inner structure of a door that I wanted to make central to the aesthetic approach of this project. A translation of these internal functional structures which are usually hidden into the luxurious and beautiful Divina fabric.

This object was made possible by the help of artist Anne Vortisch.
