Abstract Maroc

4 June - 5 July 2014

Abstract Maroc is a collection of rag rugs from Morocco made from recycled plastic bags. They were not meant to appeal to a buyer, who would have expected orderly execution, expensive lamb’s wool and traditional patterns. A thousand scraps of cotton, nylon, synthetic fibers, plastic, lurex and occasionally wool are woven into these creations. A sparkling Lurex jumper out of a western aid delivery or a neon-coloured polyester blanket seemed a thousand times more attractive than the highest quality wool. These rugs were never conceived as artwork, but developed at the whim of its weaver and influenced by the buried memories of their ancestors.
