Dreaming of a trip to Bagan, a region of Myanmar where 2,000 Buddhist temples from 11th and 12th century scatter the plains surrounded by billows of terracotta dust. These temples are adorned with unique, geometric designs which we translated to block patterns for the Maurishka Collection and we added some fresh citrus colours to create this contemporary, travel-inspired Amara fabric. • • • #andrewmartin #myanmar #wanderlust #asiantextiles #blockprinting #geometricpattern #bluefabric #travelinspired #designdiscovery

Surrounded by colorful handcrafted, handwoven textiles from some Asian countries. Feeling joy 🙌. Those beautiful textiles are currently on exhibition at Museum Tekstil, Jakarta.

South Korean artist Kyungah Ham is featured in @nytimes with a fascinating article on her artistic projects. Ham grew up in Seoul, South Korea in the 70's and would occasionally find propaganda leaflets sent from North Korea via helium balloons. Like her classmates, Ms. Ham turned in the leaflets at school, where she was given a reward for doing a small part in South Korea’s simmering ideological war with its neighbour.
In 2008 Ham, by then a multimedia artist who had come to distrust much of the history she’d been taught, knowing that South Koreans were also sending leaflets of their own over the border started to wonder: Could she communicate directly with people who, through a geopolitical tragedy now 65 years old, she is forbidden to contact?
~
It was the birth of what might be the art world’s most extraordinary, ongoing collaboration. For a decade, Ms. Ham has been producing designs on her computer that are printed and smuggled into North Korea through intermediaries based in Russia or China. Then a group of anonymous artisans, whom she has never met or spoken to, are paid to convert them into embroideries, using exquisitely fine stitching. With bribes and subterfuge, the works are smuggled back out. Ultimately, they are shown and sold at galleries and exhibitions.The most ambitious pieces are large-scale renderings of luminous, glittering chandeliers, some nearly 12 feet wide and 9 feet high, that from a distance look like photographs set against black backdrops. Get closer, and a filigree of stitches appear.
A lot of artists talk about taking risks, but few mean it as literally as Ms. Ham. International sanctions prohibit commerce with the Hermit Kingdom, so at least theoretically, she could face criminal prosecution for these cash-for-work transactions.The potential penalties for her collaborators are far graver. If caught, these residents of the world’s most repressive regime could be imprisoned or executed.
