Ikat visions

from 05/06/2008 to 28/06/2008

Galleria David Sorgato - I couldn’t say exactly when I bought my first ikat; as far as I can remember, I have always liked these textiles. Their variety, their vibrant colours and designs, and the technical skill involved in their making are close to the artistic sensibility that led me to attend the Brera Academy. Emerging from within a cultural context, that of Central Asia, where the taste for colour and passion for textile art go back to time immemorial, they arrived in the West during the course of the 19th century. Instantly becoming the object of feverish collecting, they have never stopped arousing admiration and wonder. Both highly complex in technical terms and with an immediate graphic impact, they never leave viewers indifferent. The items forming this collection were woven no later than the 1930s: and part of our astonishment is caused by the fact that garments and hangings in everyday use have survived in this condition. In inviting you to come and join me in gazing at these marvels of abstract art, not infrequently skilfully mounted on a frame and of large format, I am delighted to point out the links between these textiles and some pile-woven carpets from the same regions: these are of such interest that they will form the subject of a future exhibition.
