Happy Coincidences manages to connect the present with the past in a sublime way. The textile installation intended for the Verversdijk is a reference to the dyers who used the canal (Reie) in the Middle Ages to dye the Flemish cloth. The abstract work, featuring bright colours and playful patterns, came to life in collaboration with the people of Bruges. After a collection campaign, the artist set to work with a group of volunteers to photograph the pieces and stitch the fabrics together. The result can be found here in this digital collage and in three canvases that will appear at successive locations scattered around the city.
