27junAll Day30sep"La Vie en Soie II" exhibition by Joanna Staniszkis at Hotel de Tingry

Event Details

La Vie en Soie II is an exhibition of recent works by textile artist Joanna Staniszkis. Her works present conceptually driven interrogations around the rich history of silk production in the Luberon.

The 18th century Hotel de Tingry, provides the theatrical setting for Joanna’s artistic exploration. In each room we travel through the history of the luxurious thread, to encounter its contradictions and transformations. From the rough land of the mistral comes the smoothest thread, the greatest luxury begins with the mysterious humble silk worm. Joanna weaves a tale that has both exquisite beauty and tragic ends.

Over her long career as a textile artist, Staniszkis has received numerous awards and honors, including the Sadie Bronfman Award from the Canada Council for the Arts.

The exhibition is complemented by a photo essay of Canadian artist, Deborah MacNeill. Her work pays homage to the ancient mulberry trees of the Luberon, the still standing relics of the silk’s glorious past. 

The exhibition is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 11AM-1PM and 2-6PM or by appointment by contacting 04 90 72 54 70, mmercurio@maisondoramaar.org
