Reserve, Contemporary Hand-woven tapestry by Ane Henrik


SKU: PK736 Categories: , Tags: ,

In the eerily beautiful Reserve, Henriksen highlights ecological peril. “Nature is threatened,” she observes. “I hope this is expressed in my image, which at first glance can be seen as a peaceful, recognizable view of nature, but when you move closer and see the material, it might make you uneasy, and dad thoughts of how human activity is a threat against nature. By framing the nature motif museum-like in a solid oak frame, I try to make you aware how we store small natural remains in reserves — in the same way as we store exquisite objects from our past history in our museums.”

A professor of hers was was sure that the work Reserve was inspired by the Arctic (he had been there.) Henriksen actually found the material she used in Reserve covered with oil spots, washed up along the sea by the West Coast of Denmark. Fishermen used it, on the tables in the galley, so the plates don’t slide off when on the high seas. To have enough material for the work, she cut up webbed rubber matting into strips and then colored them with acrylic paint. The warp is silk glued together with viscose from Japan.
