Savage Flowers | Memories
banana fiber silk, bamboo silk, natural silk, linen | 300 x 300 x 1 cm | 2012
A carpet design based on flowers which grow everywhere around you in the wild: between the concrete tiles, next to the road etc. Kiki picked those flowers just in front of her studio and dried them for a few months. Like she used to do as a child. She wants to show the beauty of savage plants that grow into the wild on places were you would normally destroy them.
The carpets are made with the most exquisite hand knotting techniques.
