The human hand unites with the machine to shape an environment combining weaving and nature. With Tisser des liens, the collective imagined a space inside a shed to create an installation that echoes nature by mixing manual braiding of natural fibres and mechanical meshing of machined materials. These practices of entanglement of materials are rooted in our history, they have become industrialised, which has – unfortunately – led to a distance between the individual and the work of the material; the hand is no longer the tool. And this link, in the absence of technical education, is unravelling; we buy today without knowing or recognising. Through this disinterest, culture and know-how are also lost. However, the techniques form a universal language that makes it possible to regroup and weave relations between generations and cultures: they are silent witnesses of the past. If the link is the thread, each living species develops techniques to build an environment. This exhibit offers a new ecosystem combining primitive techniques and current practices to perpetuate this thousand-year-old link between man and nature.

The Tisserins collective

Lucas Lefebvre - Maea Teriihoania - Ilana Oudaer - Peroline Saintot - Anthony Lauvand - Arnaud Rouget - Balsem Jeridi - Floriane Marie Joseph - Meriem Krikab - Nicolas Delahaye - Tony Nguyen : the weaver bird weaves an elaborate, ball-shaped nest with twigs and leaf filaments. The Tisserins collective is developing a similar approach by weaving and braiding a sort of cocoon inside a cabin. The production of this project also allows this collective of eleven students to weave their own links in the same way that they weave them in their exhibit between man and nature...
