KRJST Studio has a triangular structure composed by Justine de Moriamé, Erika Schillebeeckx, and their work. The whole forms a magnetic field of experimentation which attracts and digests its surroundings. Four hands, two souls, and four eyes are tuned together to invoke a collective memory, to alter it, and to pass it on.
⏤ The weavings serve as witnesses of their era, survivors of a narrative, oscillating between past and future, embodying our roots, expanding the present. They can be apprehended with the alchemical unit of measurement: the time required to...
By searching, sorting, archiving; colors, shapes and materials become a puzzle of data from which we seek combinations that comforts: “ Organization, harmony, chaos and structures”; to finally obtain a poetic moment - a moment of intimacy - a work with space, in which the public finds the warmth of what is reassuring to him and the anxiety of what he discovers.
⏤ These mystical depths brought into correlation with our individual questions reposition us as part of a collective belonging.
It allows us to tell our truth in a structure of fiction, soliciting memories, fictions, passing, myths, transmissions. This time spent contemplating memories and fictions in different forms of plastic work is an invitation to take the time and immerse oneself in the memories of tomorrow.
The process of organization is set up as layers, superimpositions of periods, cultures, knowledge... that we collect and organize to create a panoramic and yet precise feeling, where we combine words that contradict each other. Scales, infinitely large and infinitely small, are depicted side by side, and are tressed and intertwined, disturbing our notion of spatiality and temporality.
⏤ These weavings are the result of research anchored in our time and of a constant development around drawing, painting, 3D drawing, as well as chemical research on conductivity. The weaving technique allows us to structure the chaos of the creation and to question the relationship between tradition and technology. Our tapestries are invitations to contemplation and mediation, to discovery and rediscovery.
Images have no spatio-temporal limits, they cross borders and persist in our memories.
“They are like ghosts for grown-ups.”
