winterSALON/2012:ancient handicrafts re-appreciated by Martine van 't Hul at Museum Geelvinck/Hinlopen Huis

The idea that ancient handicraft techniques disappear, motivates Martine van 't Hul to re-appreciate these embroidery techniques. In this serie she was inspired by an ancient Dutch craft: 'Zaans stikwerk'.
 Zaans stikwerk originated in the 17th and especially 18th century in the Netherlands. It's a technique in which a pattern is stiched through multiple layers of fabric. The patterns in Zaans stikwerk are made up of two parallel horizontal lines, through which another filling wire is threaded later in the proces.
Martine van 't Hul  - never neglecting her own typical handwriting -eloborated on this technique by adding antique jewelry & lace patterns between the layers of silk fabric.

About Min Oh
Min Oh (b. Seoul, North-Korea) is a story teller. She makes stories about tension between two contradictory qualities — sweet but disturbing, naive but violent, rational but personal, unreasonable but somehow reasonable. They constantly conflict, but never leave each other. Instead, they keep a weird balance between them. They live together almost everywhere, and every time. Since 2006, she has exhibited her work in New York, Los Angeles, London, Beijing, Ningbo, 12 cities in Russia, Seoul including in 'DesignMade' by Korea Design Foundation in 2009, 'Bauhaus Commuters' by Silke Opitz in 2009, 'Play on Screen' by Moviehouse in 2009, 'Free Store' by Anna Stein & Athena Robles in 2009, "Ningbo International Design Biennial" in 2008, “1st Contemporary & Modern Art Juried Exhibition for Aspiring Korean-American Artists” in 2007, “The Sinew of Galaxy - Not Only for Lvxiao” in 2007 among others. Currently she stays in Amsterdam hunting a lot of fun.
