Series: Figure Out
Artist: Ana Baleia
This is Don Quijote, from the book “Don Quijote de la Mancha” by Miguel de Cervantes, 1605. Figure Out – Characters from Literature is a series of textile sculptures representing figures from the pages of books, made from material collected over the years and stored in the studio including scraps of fabric, metal parts, wire and buttons. Figure Out’s creative process is to imagine the figures created in the writers’ heads, and materialize them in embodied form -giving rise to unique, detailed and expressive pieces.
Material used: Made using a variety of collected materials: fabrics, buttons, thread, filtered tea, knitting needle, baby pin, fabric paint, wire and more.
