Eke Krug – Series #3 – Bits and pieces – Looking for solid ground
Sometimes life is like a rollercoaster. All is quiet an then suddenly, something’s happening and kicking you of your feet. That is what happened on the 15th of March this year, a simple phone call changed everything. It was our landlord, telling us that we had to leave our house within tree months, because her son needed it. So all at once, we had to move from the house where we loved to live, look for another house and move all our stuff to another place, leaving behind what we just build up during the last two years. Where to go?
We talked about it and decided, that since this would be our fourth address in eight year, we should better move back to Holland. Over there it is also not easy to find a house, so it was a very stressful period. Since I had an exhibition in the Nederland in the beginning of April, we had already planned a tour that way in the end of March. On our way there, I fell on the ground, tore both ankle bands in my left foot and ended up in a wheelchair. So this all declares the title of my third piece, looking for solid ground.
All kind of fabric scraps, several sorts of wool thread and wool fibre, machine sewing threads and hand embroidery threads. Synthetic batting, meant for table runners.
