Haak werken in Vasconcelos’ Versailles tentoonstelling

Golden Valkyrie: “Handmade woollen crochet, industriële breien (textiel), stoffen, ornamenten, polyester, stalen kabels”

I recently did a post about how Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos was going to be the first female to exhibit at The Château de Versailles. I mentioned then that I couldn’t wait to see what crochet work she would exhibit in this grand space. Goed, the exhibit is up so I’ve got the answer. Hier is het:
