FABRIC OF LIFE SOLO PRESENTATION

 

In 'Fabric of Life', Aleksandra Gaca presents her new textiles - the latest results of a 20-year career in weaving innovation and experimentation. The exhibition consists of a unique sensory environment in which Gaca's fabrics provide experiences ranging from the tactile to the visual and auditory, as they absorb and muffle sound. 
On show her new acoustic fabric designed for Casalis and her own-label cushion and bed throw collection.

'MONDRIAAN TO DUTCH DESIGN' EXHIBITION
Also on show at Masterly this year, as part of the exhibition 'Mondriaan to Dutch Design', is the design for a unique site-specific piece by Aleksandra Gaca: the auditorium wall covering for Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden, the Netherlands. For this project, Gaca took her inspiration from compositions by Theo van Doesburg, the artist who founded the De Stijl movement in Leiden in 1917. Her finished design will feature in the museum’s reopening in 2019.
