Rhizomes Cobble Stone Tabac Hand Knotted Rug by Charlotte Culot

About

Rhizomes cobble stone Tabac hand knotted rug by Charlotte Culot Edition: 8 Signed Dimensions: 61 x 223 cm Materials: Silk, wool, linen, allo Hand knotted. During a visit to Château La Coste in 2018 Charlotte Culot was inspired by a strikingly modern woven tapestry designed by Le Corbusier. She was there to see the Etel Adnan exhibition whose writing she admires, and when she realised that this artist too had had some of her compositions woven as tapestries by Aubusson, her desire to transpose her works into carpets was confirmed. This serendipitous encounter convinced Charlotte Culot to follow her new creative vision, enriching an artistic career that began with painting in 1990. This project of “woven colour” came to life when she met the colour specialist and director of textile collection, Perrine Blaise, who coordinated the adaption of the paintings, the transposition of the colours and advised on the choice of production atelier. The weavers are Nepalese, chosen for their skill in interpreting demanding designs. With hand-spun Tibetan wool, silk and linen, and meticulously rendered dyes, the collection of hand-knotted carpets Rhizomes* Tapis d’artiste has been brought to fruition. A long creative chain linking, plant, animal and human, with a global and spiritual aura that is a founding principal of Charlotte’s work. The first carpet was shown at the Château de Vogüé in the summer of 2018 as part of the Couleurs exhibition. Magnificently displayed in the chateau’s Stateroom, the carpet was hung vertically like a wall tapestry, reflecting its nascence in Charlotte’s paintings. Each design is limited to eight examples, some vividly coloured works of the artist have been voluntarily transposed with a subtle palette of white tones punctuated with grey and black. Others reflect the strong collages of startling tones, emblematic of Charlotte Culot’s work.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
