Canne à motif de paon (Stick with a peacock motif)
A series of sticks, by Alessandro Piangiamore, 2015 3rd Prize equally ranked.
For the 2015 call for creation “Aubusson weaves fashion”, the Italian plastic artist Alessandra Piangiamore proposed a series of sticks, at the border between luxury accessories and “utilitarian object”. It takes the motif of the peacock back, which is very present in the tapestries from Aubusson, notably by Dom Robert, to give it both an abstract and a natural form.
The weaving was realized by the Atelier Catherine Bernet.
