Happy Coincidences consists of four installations: one permanent installation on the Verversdijk and three temporary installations at various locations. The digital textile installation on the Verversdijk connects the past with the present in a sublime manner. This installation is a reference to the dyers who used the Reie during the Middle Ages to dye Flemish cloth. The abstract work, featuring bright colours and playful patterns, came to life in collaboration with the people of Bruges. Photos of fabric and objects were collected to allow the artist to make a design that was then printed on architectural mesh. This installation can be viewed throughout the course of Triennial Bruges. In addition, a huge quantity of fabric has been collected. From mid-April to late May, Amanda Browder worked together with around 750 volunteers in total to sew three textile installations. These textile installations appear one after another in three different places in the city: ◆ 24.05 | House of Time | Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m. > 6 p.m. ◆ 16.07 | Lace Museum ◆ 03.09 | Biekorf (rear wall) In collaboration with 't Naaldeke.
