KILIMS Reloaded 1993 - 2001

Due to the specifications of the weaving process, KM’s designs, like traditional kilims, rely on mirror-image, dual patterns and honour the fact that the technique primarily relies on horizontal stripes. Although KM’s designs seem to be inspired by sub-Saharan ‘art-premier’, he avoids concrete symbolic and thus folkloric references and instead strengthens the ornamental.

The dimensions of the looms specify a width of 1.20 to 1.40 metres, while the length is in principle unlimited. Most kilims are 1.80 to 2.30 metres long, which consumes around seven kilogrammes of wool. Only white wool from Anatolian longhaired sheep is used, hand-spun and dyed with natural substances.
