La Couverture Vivante

Residency October 24 to November 26, 2007

Initiated by Doris Buttignol for the artist collective Les Brasseurs de Cages, La Couverture Vivante invites women from around the world to express their world views through fabric self-portraits. These self-portraits are then brought together in a larger symbolic object: a quilt of hope. The Internet portal Les Étonnantes Paroles du Monde, created by Annick Hurst, couples the self-portraits with cultural information, woven into an interactive timeline. One of the project’s objectives is to promote an alternate world map. Les Étonnantes Paroles du Monde and the Daoula project stand together in their support of viable planetary alternatives. [A.H.]
