imitation of a copy

artwork commission from the Royal College of Art - History of Design Dep. & Melissa Tyler for the Reimagining Objects Exhibition at the Hockney Gallery.

I was asked to reinterpret a woolen wall hang from the XVII C., which immitated tapestry techniques from the time. My copy would be exhibited in lieu of the original copy from the V&A textiles archive. An exploration on the ideas of copy, immitation and the value of material and technique.
