Textile installations by Amanda Browder

18 September 2019

Amanda Browder is an artist who loves to experiment with materials and explore their true nature in relation to public spaces.

Textile artist Amanda Browder performs site-specific architectural interventions using hundreds of meters of recycled fabric with vibrant colors and patterns. The artist and her team of volunteers sew together huge panels that wrap around bell towers, raised walkways, and overhanging and upsetting the physiognomy of the scenarios, to offer passers-by a new experience of the buildings they are familiar with.

Recalling the work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, the artist defines her practice as a mix between “soft sculpture” and the actual installation applied to public buildings.

“I’m in love with the changing nature of materials and how the combination of the familiar creates abstract relationships on the spot. I’m attracted to reinventing the colors of Pop Art by exploring scale changes and sculptural perceptions.”

This relational objectivity generates an open narrative, ambiguous situations defined by the choice of materials and work ethics. Recently the artist has collaborated with the prestigious organization ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The work, entitled Kaleidoscopic, is currently on display in the locations around Grand Rapids.
