Embroidered Photographs

Share:

The Galerie Esther Woerdehoff of Paris puts embroidered photographs by Austrian artist Iris Hutegger on display. On view through April 30, 2016.

“Above all, I am a sculptor,” says Iris Hutegger. Although her work starts with a camera. Iris Hutegger, passionate hiker of the Alps, takes photographs of these rocky elements she knows since childhood using color images she then develops, often months later in order to distance herself from the memory of the place, in black and white which gives the mountains a pronounced grain and a lunar appearance. Afterward, Iris Hutegger takes each photograph, printed on thick paper, and pass it under the foot of her Bernina sewing machine. With the sewing machine, she brings to the landscape a unique color, a vegetation and geological dimension that never existed.

Iris Hutegger was born in 1964 in Schladming, Austria and currently lives and works in Basel. By mixing techniques such as sculpture or photography, Iris Hutegger creates installations that question the landscape, the space, the natural and the artificial. The works of Iris Hutegger were shown in numerous exhibitions in Europe. The Galerie Esther Woerdehoff is proud to present her first solo exhibition in France.
