DESIGNER: MAREI REI
With Galerie Gosserez, Marei Rei presents a selection of unique pieces. She explores the reformulation of concrete materials and everyday objects, by reinventing properties and conventional prescriptions of use. The concrete textiles, a fusion of handcrafted weaving and concrete, spin a poly-directional, poetic language between various fields of interpretation. The placement of the carpet as a design piece interests the artist for the new physical experience of the material it generates, by using the carpets in our daily surrounding. The inversion of use and meaning allows us to use a material in opposition to its original function. Thus new functions and newly arranged qualities are being created. Heavy becomes light, solid concrete mass becomes flexible.
