Natura Morte by Evalou Hauge
The project is inspired by still life/stilleben/nature morte paintings. In these paintings you find food, flowers, dead animals, books, vases etc. In my tapestries from last years exhibition I focused on the dead flowers in the piece ‘still life detached’, and now the turn has come to birds. The birds are dead, I held them in my hands, spread out their wings, photographed them and then digitally printed them on fabric. They have then been hand embroidered with black pearls, sequins and gold stitches in India.
