Gili Shahar

Graduate of the Textile Design department at Shenkar College. Exhibited at the Design Week in New York in 2019. At the core of Shahar’s work is a dialogue between each layer of fabric as well as between the fabric and the person holding the scissors. With sheets of cloth woven using a Jacquard machine, Shahar creates separations – from image, from a grasp at beauty or from memory – as she provides the spectator with an experience of transience and transformation. By cutting strings in an intuitive yet calculated manner, the pattern changes before the spectator’s eyes and a new image emerges. The fabric invites the viewer to recreate it and generate within it a new inner logic. The works’ inherent pace and reason are a perfect embodiment of the very idea of weaving, both materially and conceptually.
