Maria LOBODA presents two printed fabrics inspired by the designs of Sonia Delaunay, Lotte Frömmel-Fochler, Mitzi Friedmann-Otten, and others – or to be more precise, triggered by written descriptions of their geometric textiles. Loboda consulted published texts which try to describe and communicate the energy of these Wiener Werkstätte and Art Déco patterns in words – "vigorous angular forms and overall jagged feel", "curving arabesques and energetic zig-zigs", "vaguely explosive motifs", for example – and then attempted to recreate the designs from what these phrases suggested to her, alongside her memory of such patterns. The artist is fascinated by the nervous, violent and dynamic energy of the interior decoration associated with the early-20th-Century avant-garde and how it tried to create a psychological state of electric action for the modern home and its inhabitants. The accompanying slideshow Il Lavoro (The Art of Memory) (2010) plays with continuity errors in cinema and is based on a film still from the short film Il Lavoro (1962) by Luchino Visconti. A woman is seen posing next to an open book with changing illustrations of Sonia Delaunay's geometric designs.
