Nothing - no room, no time, no grass

Empty, fuel of emptiness, no colour

The beginning of an end.

about me


Ariane is a textile and performance artist from the planet Earth with a Swiss passport. She likes to bring traditional hand craft together with contemporary themes, for example, by combining knitting with provocative statements. With her art, Ariane manages to materialise emotional states with textile fibres and, therefore, let them interact with the environment so that the observer recognises it, invoking the feeling of looking into a mirror. Ariane weaves together the art of textile and performance.

my background

I am since 20 years a autodidact Artist - focus on Textilework & Performance

WHY study in the Textile Academy


Textile is a material we know from daily life. It's a thankful material for exploring new forms, statements and confusing with the softness to difficult themes. I am also intrested in the feminism and textilwork.

I am looking forward to explore new dimensions patterns and magic with my creativity & the great team in Iceland.

I also want to study because I am curious and want to update my handcraft skills I already have with new technology.
