Silicone carpets

Words

While visiting Turkey, german artist Heike Weber was fascinated by the kilim – the turkish word for carpet – and created this silicone carpet series, currently adorning the Arp Museum Bahnhof Rolandseck Bahnhof Rolandseck in Remagen. The familiar characteristics of the orient manifest themselves as patterns that are carefully reproduced in stringy white silicone and carry the immanent culture of the east with them.
