The silk scarf PARDES is part of a limited series of 20. The name ‘Pardes’ is a Hebrew word meaning ‘paradise’. The deisgner thought about the film ‘Pardes’ when looking for a title for this work. It’s some kind of a personal reference or a memory of what her work means to her. According to Van der Massen, textile as medium is situated between two extremes: there is a fucntional aspect to it due it its relation with the body and the potential applications of a fabric. And then there is a medium where – analogue to painting, glass- and ceramic art – the field of image, plain and matter is being explored. Pardes shows the symbiosis between the manual and the digital that results in a versatile print that could work autonomously or in different setting like public space, interior or fashion. Pardes can be used as a scarf or as a wallhanging. Click here to see more.
