Description This tapestry or wall-piece is created out of a huge old persian rug, gold-plated with imitation gold leaf in the manner of a reverted Splash motif. The artist focuses in her oeuvre on out-of-use rugs, damaged rugs or the unwanted, where she makes her artistic interventions. She is a master in creating an impressive illusion, through overpainting or cutting oriental rugs. Wear and tear - the Design of Time - are the basis for the artwork .
Laboriously woven or knotted by hand, oriental rugs tell stories, interwoven in the piece. The ornaments have strong meanings. A rug can be for decorative furnishing, a symbol for paradise or a place holder for prayer. The artist uses this strong symbolism and marries it with the interventions of her choice, like cutting, overpainting or gilding.
During its lifetime a rug is traded, bought, possibly resold, used over decades by various people, layering the piece with another history of usage. Foot worn carpets are witnesses of their past. One cannot simply copy them. Here aesthetics is to be understood as a state that cannot be produced intentionally. Such surfaces develop slowly and on their own through the human interaction and use. Noemi is a material fetishist and lets collide the grown with the made. She loads banal substances and materials that feel distant to art with a new meaning.
