Scaffolding nets embroidered with cable ties and tulle are installed as façade coverings on construction sites worldwide. SOLANGE aims to draw attention to feminist demands on a large scale. The thematic areas for the slogans are developed from numerous conversations around the topic of feminism. The focus is on questioning current social power structures.
A sentence that begins with “SOLANGE…” and ends with “…ich bin Feminist:in” is embroidered in pink tulle in large-scale cross-stitch on dust nets and mounted on scaffolding. The field of tension arises from the dynamic between traditionally female connoted crafts and male-dominated construction sites. The artist breaks up this binary through the content of the sentences and intends to build a bridge between all genders.
