Blurring Borders: IED and Adorno present Las Manuelas Art Series

IED image for exhibition

IED and Adorno present a collaborative journey integrating a diverse community of artisans, street artists and institutions resulting in eleven scarves handcrafted by Peruvian alpaca breeders.

Las Manuelas is a creative community without barriers, a collective commitment, a platform to promote the connection and horizontal collaboration between Peruvian alpaca artisans with artists, designers, art directors, curators and creative minds from all over the world. The exhibition takes place in the spaces of Tableau Gallery, where an effective installation highlights not only the fabrics made from the precious natural alpaca wool, hand-dyed and knitted on the basis of the artwork of contemporary artists, but also the matrix on which the artisans patiently worked to understand the pattern and the best technique to make the final fabric.

The project is brought to Copenhagen thanks to the contribution of IED – Istituto Europeo di Design who was involved since the early stages and provided continuous support throughout the development.
