Wies Preijide made her rather explosive debut in The Hague’s 2011 degree show, when she separated areas of the exhibition using dividing walls of meticulously woven thread. Hung against walls or used as a divider in a space, the lines of thread become almost beams of light in the room, casting colourful shadows and playing tricks on the eyes of viewers. “The textile walls make the existing space divisible, but also create optical transparency and spaciousness by the experience in perspective.” Wies says, “Through a combination of lines, color, views and passageways the spectator the idea of a transparent walking home.”
The Hague is renowned for producing particularly talented designers and artists, and Wies is no exception. In this utterly spellbinding installation he has cemented her future as a brilliant artist or set designer, and we can’t wait to find out which.
