Bandhani -
Tie-dye craft from Kutch, India
(
Abduljabbar Khatri )

We belong to a community of tie-dyers in Kutch, India. We started working from 1992 and wanted to create something that revives some lost technique, is production friendly, and presents in a new contemporary way to the world. We work with designers globally with focus on design innovation, quality of tying and freshness in colours. This leads to overall improvement of tying across the craft and increased the value of the craft. It helped in creating employment for more than 200 women across villages of Kutch through our work. Awards include UNESCO seal of excellence (2006/07/08), Living Traditions Award (2017), Young Craftsperson Award, Asia-Pacific Region, 2nd prize (2008). Past events: workshops in V&A London (2007), Oriento Museum (2012), USA, Seattle, Santa Fe; Santa Fe Folk Art Market (2007-2011 and 2013-2018); Sibory Symposium, Oxaca, Mexico (2016); Hungarian Folk Art Market (2016)

MODELMAKING IN THE DIGITAL AGE -
CASTING MATERIALS IN ARCHITECTURE
( ARMOR GUTIÉRREZ RIVAS )

"Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine are two of the foremost architectural artists working today. Their films focus on the relationship of people and design, emphasising the presence of everyday life within some of the most iconic architectural projects of recent decades." Barbican Centre, London
______

Video-artists, filmmakers, producers and publishers, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine have been working together for the past 10 years mainly focusing their research on experimenting new narrative and cinematographic forms in relation to contemporary architecture and urban environment. Focusing their interest mainly on how the built environment shapes and influences our daily life, they have developed a very unique and personal approach which can be defined, in reference to French writer Georges Perec, as an "anthropology of the ordinary".
