Über die Ausstellung

Itamar Yehiel / Sculptural Embroidery
For thousands of years, humanity has been telling stories with needle and thread. Embroidery is in almost every culture, on every continent – a global craft.
Now I use this craft, which exists in our DNA, to tell my own story, and perhaps yours too, as members of a society that is getting more and more global.
By using freehand machine embroidery and hand stitching, I represent natural objects and try to capture the fragile and vulnerable; the rigid and stable – all through the use of thread.
The embroideries float above the surface and invite you to dive into the subject’s beauty and details, exploring the possibilities each material
embodies floods the imagination.
The combination of realism and illusion, object and empty space, light and shadow, decay and rebirth, invoke multi-layered stories that touch
different moments and elements in our lives.
