The Silent Speaker – Part I: The Curtain
The Silent Speaker – Curtain was displayed in the storefront windows of an abandoned shop located in the centre of Levanger, Norway. This two-part curtain is made of apron patterns. The front- and backsides of the patterns are needle-pinned and topstiched onto the curtain cloth, i.e. the pattern can be easily removed, sewn together and the apron is ready-to-wear!
The textile material used for the curtain are references to the process of drafting and modelling garments, while the aprons embody the invisible workers.
