Jip van den Toorn : Inappropriate grandma

Experimental

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I created these cushions because I wanted to tell a story trough illustration without using paper. By playing with the expectations of embroidery, these cushions force the viewer to create their own story around them. Who made them? And why where they made?

How was the illustration used:
As an own personal project

How did you make this work:
These cushions are embroidered entirely by hand. They each took around 100 hours to make and they are 40 cm x 40 cm. The embroidery is made of wool and the back is brown velour.
