MARGOT VAN DEN BERGHE

Margot creates her own visual language, an alphabet consisting of shapes and colors. Seemingly worthless materials are transformed into valuable works in an almost alchemical manner. All too often textiles are shown in a one-sided way. A striking front or top makes us forget that an object also has a back or bottom. Margot plays with these different sides by manipulating surfaces while folding. The approach is as important as the end result.
