People of the Thread

4 Nov


Some Maurizio Anzeri to go ’round. Working with photography & embroidery he creates a madly textured, in some cases, creepy evocation from the photos he uses. I like them.

‘I work with sewing, embroidery and drawing to explore the essence of signs in their physical manifestation. I take inspiration from my own personal experience and observation of how, in other cultures, bodies themselves are treated as living graphic symbols. I then use sewing and embroidery in a further attempt to re-signify, and mark the space with a man-made sign, a trace. I am interested in people’s stories and histories, and the relation between intimacy and the outer world. I have been working with hair for the past few years. I stitch and sew hair together until it becomes a sculpture. I see hair as a metaphorical medium to represent bodily boundaries, the embodiment of space.’ Maurizio Anzeri

    When I saw the “people who kind of look like fish” tag, I thought this might tie into the recent Bloomberg re-election. I’m almost certain that he is a fish in a man-suit. Or more accurately, an Iguana/Carp Fish hybrid in a man-suit. But alas, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this entry instead features some oddly intriguing photo-embroidery. That first image is downright creepy, and the baby in the last is both funny and unsettling in its Oyster Boy resemblance.
