CARRÉ DE SOIE, 2006
Impression on silk, 90 cm x 90 cm, limited edition
The scarf is a component of the attire in many religions. At a time when conflicts are often derived from religious rivalries, it seemed appropriate to me to use an item that belongs to the symbolic universe shared by many cultures, as well as the fashion world.
A closer look at this seemingly traditional silk scarf reveals interwoven symbols of a dozen religion harmoniously occupying the same space. Given the universal need to believe, and at a time when more than ever in recent history religious dogma divides and threatens, this silk scarf speaks of peace, reconciliation and, above all, freedom.
