Mathilde D'Hooge Textile design

Mathilde D’Hooge spent five years studying Textile Design at Arba-Esa (Brussels), time and space that enabled her to work materials for their own sake. She questions and investigates the discipline from the perspective of different techniques (weaving, tapestry, bobbin lace, embroidery, etc). As her research developed D’Hooge found her favoured techniques, weaving, cutting (manual or laser), folding and tapestry, from which she has created her own textile language: a language based on the rhythm dictated by the set of cuts or folds. The cut and the fold that sometimes splits, sometimes is lacy, sometimes modulates, provides a rhythm, a pulse.
D’Hooge’s plays on the unity in multiplicity through interplay of form and counterform, openings, transparency, disassembly and reconstruction. The fragment pattern repeated infinitely is expressed through different symmetries that each provides a new look at a field of endless possibilities. At this stage in her career, ¬ simplicity as complexity is all for D’Hooge.
