DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK
Artistic project approached from an environmentally ethical and responsible point of view, enhancing artisan work in contrast to the standards of the fashion system nowadays: Artisan textile techniques and reuse of waste and noble raw materials, striving to reduce the pollution derived from non- renewable resources.
The “Resilience” collection associates this concept with cartographic art, more specifically with the works made by two Argentinian artists: Horacio Zabala (1943) and Adriana Bustos (1965), who through this resource stylize cartography in order to question the image of the map as a representation an era makes of space and knowledge from the centrality of power.
