Inspired by the handmade, the detail, imperfection, the passage of knowledge from generation to generation, Tradition. Knit and Crochet hooks have become the essential tool in her daily life.

A selection of multifunctional pieces, which reflect the artist’s passion for traditional crafts are exhibited. Pieces born of an extended research in traditional textile techniques, be it in Portugal or countries such as Mexico and Nepal,

From Janis Dellarte’s hands grow knitted cords. In honour of the textile process and the amount of time it takes to create, these roots will grow organically for a month connecting the space and the artists.
