Soft Cover / Contemporary Quilt

Soft Cover

“Soft Cover” is a 200x250 cm contemporary quilt, made of printed cotton, applications and fleece-filling. Layout and production connect traditional quiltart and modern computer technology. The pattern of 270 illustrations observes reality and documents topics of the actual agenda: consumerism, society, brands, classes, environment, politics, war, life, death etc. Inspired by the style of historical quilts, symbols like flowers and animals were interpreted in a contemporary style. Furthermore, arthistorical and religious symbols give a hint to the ambiguity of the quilt. It subsists on its tension between superficial beauty and morbid meaning.
