“One becomes many/many become one”
“The exhibition “One becomes many/many become one” talks about the process of becoming whole – a process where the original form of an object starts to unravel and its individual parts are slowly reworked. The end result is a more multifaceted entirety than the original.
The process started with wool – a familiar, everyday material. I am interested in how, in a different context, familiar objects and activities can lead us to a new clarity. Through the process of needle felting, wool, a formless, soft mass, takes on a more definite form and loses its original uniformity. The time-consuming and endless repetition of this method made me think about what typifies the process. If, from one large mass of wool, you can get many separate and different entities, then together these make a new entity, which encompasses all the individual parts, including the space they inhabit.”
