The Integrated Fabric Art Project, by Marta Fofi and Francesca Nicchi, consists of two phases: the first, an exhibit of the work of both artists to be held in Gubbio (Perugia), Italy, in the Palazzo dei Consoli (Palace of the Consuls), from December 19, 2014 to January 6, 2015; the second, a “performance” open to everyone and available throughout the entire duration of the exhibit.
The idea is to join together our “pieces” and all the “pieces” that will be sent to us during the next three months, or for those living in Gubbio and its vicinity, that will be brought directly to us on the day of the inauguration or throughout the duration of the exhibit.
The message behind this collective artwork is one of unity and generosity. Sewing all the pieces together becomes an act of stitching and healing wounds.
We will be the tools necessary to carry out this action, joining the emotions that each participant decides to share with us by donating a piece of their world.
We will work together for the duration of the exhibit to unite these universes.
Anyone can participate, regardless of gender, age or nationality.
For those who wish to participate in “integrating the fabric”, but are not able to do so in person, it will be possible to send your work before December 10, 2014 to the following address:
Via Perugina, 97
Gubbio (PG) – 06024
There are no artistic and expressive restrictions, if not that, the piece can be sewn to the others. The maximum dimensions must not exceed 50cm x 50cm. Anyone can participate, regardless of gender, age or nationality. The “time” needed to create this “integrated fabric” serves to remind us that we are all a part of everything, and will correspond with the duration of the exhibit.
When completed, THE INTEGRATED FABRIC ART PROJECT will become an installation to be exhibited as testimony to the work done and as a poetic message of unity and sharing.
