Clio Padovani




In my work I  am interested in exploring time in the image, be it through video or through woven pieces. I work with varied approaches to unfold the plurality of narratives hidden in textiles, employing images of antique textiles to communicate a fragmentary world of physical and psychological experience. In 2006, I started a series of short films based on the idea of unfolding and stacking simultaneous layers of experience and subjective histories.
The Stack pieces progressively came to signify and be a metaphor for thread, being woven into a personal history or an accumulation of embedded material memories.
