Found in moowon an amazing article about textile collage prepared by Chinese women living in the countryside.
The testimony about this making shared in the article is amazing.
“When I was a kid, my mother was making collages. She always kept aside the cloths she found. When the time came to make it, she first sorted all the cloth on a paper to the right and left to see if the colors were in harmony, then she began to glue them when she was satisfied with the colors. And that’s how a work of art was born. When the weather was nice, the women of the village gathered at the entrance of a house to work together while chatting. And the collage became a real competition between the women. The one who made the most beautiful collage was like a champion who would have won a grand prize for sport.” (San Paolo, Brazil in 2002, Xin Yang, retired director of the Museum of the Forbidden City)
