Tapestries as Printed Leporellos
The work Four Worlds displays four tapestries of artist and designer Hannah Waldron on paper. It was published on the occasion of her solo exhibition Solmania at the Studio Fotokino, Marseille—which took place from October 10th, 2020 until November 22nd, 2020. Each tapestry is reproduced as a leporello, and is accompanied by a text written by the artist. The female weavers featured in these artworks represent four examples of the craftsperson as worldmaker, and relate to tales from classical Greece, the Tang dynasty in China, ancient Japan, and the Hopi tribe in Northeastern Arizona.
