Carolina Apolonia

My work reflects my intimate world. Often I construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, boxes, and cities that mirror my dreams and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past or people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries (…)

(…) When I was six years old, I learned to sew. I’ve designed, made and mended many items of clothing, accessories, curtains, cushions, dolls etc.  This love for textile techniques constitutes an important aspect of my jewellery practice. Sewing by hand is like meditation to me; while sewing I build and repair, stich by stitch. 

In my most recent series I’ve started to sew scraps of old book covers together. Old books carry stories: the stories themselves ánd the tales of the people that read them.

I met Carolina Apolonia on Facebook when Begoña Prats told me about her work since they share a passion for sewing and textile techniques. For more information you can visit her website and her pages on Crafthaus and Klimt02.

Vaig conèixer a la Carolina Apolonia al Facebook quan La Begoña Prats em va parlar del seu treball i que compartien la passió per cosir i les tècniques tèxtils. Podeu trobar més informació al seu web i a les seves pàgines de Crafthaus i Klimt02.
