2 hours, 54 minutes is a large-scale tapestry that represents our experience with nature as an unfamiliar place. A place characterized by its own rules and structures. For spaces existing outside social norms, Foucault coined the term Heterotopia. Our work is inspired by cartography and natural formations. It is made entirely of natural materials, takes up formal structures of tree bark, which thus embodies the forest.
We worked together on one loom using traditional weaving techniques. The result are two separate works that merge into each other and thereby enter into a dialogue. The title of the work is a time designation. It refers to the distance between Berlin as the place of creation, and the forest near Baruth, where this project was conceived. The red thread symbolizes the time invested in the weaving process, establishes a rhythmic connection between the two pieces and allows a whole to emerge from them.
