"Green Thunder" by Sanne Bax

In the former wool city, Sanne displays samples of her idiosyncratic and contemporary approach to the material. At a time when synthetic fabrics predominate, she crafts tufted textile sculptures from natural wool, which "carries with it memories of the landscape from which it comes.

Due to the award of a start-up grant from the Mondriaan Fund, her work will also be on display at Art Rotterdam in February. Sanne participates in the 'TalentHub' jump! in which 6 art institutions in Brabant mentor and coach talented artists at the beginning of their careers. Jump! is made possible by the province of Noord-Brabant.
