Textile Art Exhibition: Soft Stone by Katarina Spacal (SLO) 01/02-18/03/24
Where? 21A, Avenue Gaston Diderich, L-1420 LUXEMBOURG Art, Culture & Literature

_Under the Patronage of the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Brussels

Subtile Gallery is very pleased to present the textile works from Katarina Spacal created over a span of more than two decades. They all seem to take their inspiration from the areawhere she was born — the Karst region — with its dry, limestone land whipped by the wind that blows out to the Adriatic Sea. Her formative years were spent either here or in the capital, Ljubljana, where her late father Jože Spacal — a prominent mosaic artist and scenographer — was her first art teacher. In Ljubljana she later studied textile and clothing design and, towards the end of her studies, began to explore the art of weaving.While most tapestries made on a loom would generally be flat and often merely decorative, Katarina’s, in contrast, are composed of several woven pieces which are then folded, gathered and sewn together, thereby creating soft, irregular shapes. And while some art critics may have described her work as ‘woven paintings’, in reality they are much more three-dimensional and sculptural than that would suggest, with surfaces rich with gentle folds, swirls and knots.


This exhibition is under the patronage of the Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia in Brussels

The Opening will take place

on Thursday 1 February from 6 to 9pm with live music of the young and talented Slovenian Violinist Gaja Sušelj

The exhibition will be open from 1 February until 17 March 2024.
