Christina Forrer: Matrix 187

Contemporary conflict lies at the core of Christina Forrer’s narrative tapestries. The fantastical compositions explore themes of family discord and environmental strife, using a visual language rooted in classical mythology and the regional folk traditions of her native Switzerland. Her raw and energetic weaving style, vivid color palette, and intentionally misaligned panels combine effects of the handmade with the magical. The artist has also curated a selection of objects from the Wadsworth’s holdings, largely from the costume & textiles collection. Displayed in dialogue with her weavings, the additional pieces draw out the cultural themes and creative processes found in her own work.
