Interlace, textile research is an evolutive exhibition showcasing live research and production on the theme of weaving. Throughout the three months of the exhibition, three looms—the Space Loom, the Seamless Loom, and the digital TC2 loom—are activated by a range of professional designers working at, or invited by Jongeriuslab.
The topic of weaving is treated not only as a craft with a long history, but also as a technical, thematic, and critical enquiry; a vehicle for cultural innovation. For three months, research and experiments in 3D and digital weaving are filling Lafayette Anticipations’ spaces both vertically and horizontally, turning them into a designer’s laboratory, all the while questioning our relationship to textile, tactility, labour, and the natural environment, and the limited vocabulary we have to describe these relationships.
