Intro

From precious material it is possible to make unsightly looking objects. From inconsequential material it is also possible to make precious objects. The latter is the speciality of Verena Sieber-Fuchs.
With the rich textile tradition of Switzerland’s St. Gallen as her background, she has worked for decades using one specific technique: crocheting fabric in which she incorporates umpteen small pieces of varying materials. Originally she used classical materials like glass or silver beads and sequins, later she added paper, photo film, packaging or natural materials like seeds or peelings.
The fabrics can be hung in space as objects or laid and arranged in various compositions or – when made into a Möbius loop – worn as a necklace or veil.
In Verena’s work infinite patience and a virtuoso skill go hand in hand with love and attention to detail. They can be multicoloured and festive with chocolate paper or critical and concerned when celebrity photos and medication strips are used.
