Intro
Andrea MAXA Halmschlager is an artist based in Vienna, Austria, and Laub, Germany. She was trained at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, and Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam. During 1993-2008, she was a teacher for sculptural design and metalwork at Schulzentrum Herbststraße, Vienna. Her work can be seen in exhibitions, publications, as well as in public collections in Austria, such as Stadt Wien, Landessammlungen Niederösterreich, MAK, Vienna, and in LACMA, Los Angeles.

Statement

Color meets color, pattern encounters pattern, Bordabesques discover the body.

Red rose vines on a black and white background was the start of my love for the border trimmings. I collect old ones from workshops that have long ceased to exist, new ones from China, valuable ones at exorbitant prices, and cheap ones by the kilo. Border trimmings sewn together produce fabrics and new associations. Titles inspired by the textile images such as Rosenrot, Hippie and Gecko shape their future design.

Draped around your body, the "Bordabesques" invite you to play with your positioning, as the 
Jeu à l’or shows. I see the fighter in me when I wear it as a belt around my waist. When I arrange it as a headdress, I feel as though I am in a painting by an old master.
