AURORA PASSERO

ARTIST STATEMENT

Aurora Passero’s works in woven and dyed nylon can be experienced as monumental installations in the field between sculpture and painting. Building on a broad interest in different cultural expressions such as popular and underground culture, handcraft, ethnology and art history, Passero creates spatial compositions where she explores opposing states between material, space, form and content.

 

“I like to think of weaving as a larger, more complex metaphor that can be about time, repetition, touch, and experience. Weaving provides a limited, focused period – from start to a finished result. It is a meditative state where I digest thoughts around what I create. At the same time, I physically experience how the woven material can behave by manipulating the methods I use in different ways. In this way, weaving is a central process for my practice, and a method that is indispensable for the result.”
