Marie Ilse Bourlanges – Decay / Marie Ilse Bourlanges

Visual artist Marie Ilse Bourlanges (Paris 1983) graduated from the Rietveld Academy in 2008 with her project Decay. Decay is a series of innovative textiles that sublimate or anticipate the broad semantic of decay. The resulting collection of eight knitted sweaters reveal the complex and intimate relationships between notions of Time, Body, Skin and Clothes. The pattern, an intricate collection of lines that ebb across the textile, originated from traces of use and body movements, registered by means of a carbon paper suit. The final pieces possess an ambiguous ‘forensic’ feeling: even though they are newly made, the traces they carry express a past enigma that cannot absolutely be solved. The entire project has been recorded in a book, designed by graphic designer Xavier Fernández Fuentes (1980-2017).
