For Copenhagen’s alternative art fair Alt_Cph Another Space is proud to present our new publication Textile Spaces. We have also invited architect and textile designer Akane Moriyama to install a new, site-specific version of her Blue Bricks shown for the first time at Another Space in May 2013.

Akane Moriyama implements textile as a functional and aesthetic spatial element in architecture, suggesting a dissolving of traditional architectural solidity and rigidity. By constructing with textile, she creates three-dimensional volumes that are both massive and light. Aware of how the material is transformed by the insertion in a specific site, she is not only sensitive towards the effects of her interventions, but to the dialogue between materials, between the hard and the soft.

Textile Spaces presents different approaches to using textile as spatial definer and artistic medium. The publication collages images and text, art and architecture, science, philosophy and literature, process and product, past, present and future. It forms an insight into soft materials’ functional and poetic potentials, linking the disciplines through fragments of the artists’ and architects’ practices, while simultaneously framing these textile visions in a wider context.
