Georgina Maxim is one of the creators exhibited in the FITE exhibition Love etc. at the Musée Bargoin, Clermont-Ferrand.
Enjoy your listening!
Artist and curator, Georgina Maxim co-founded Unhu Village in 2012 as a collective exhibition and art space.
Her artistic practice turns to the textile field through embroidery, weaving and sewing techniques on second hand fabrics. She deconstructs and recomposes in order to create a singular work, impregnated with memories, histories and emotions.
“People associate memory with negativity, with something that is sad. The first thing people put memory to is sadness, and yet it really isn’t. Give me the joyful part, the happiness side.”
You are listening to an episode of a long series of interviews conducted with the artists, designers, collectors who make the International Festival of Extra Ordinary Textiles, during this edition "love etc."
Co-organized by the association HS_Projets, the City of Clermont-Ferrand and the Bargoin Museum Clermont- Auvergne-Métropole, the FITE, an initiative of the association HS_Projets, is nomadic and invites the 5 continents. In odd years, the event goes abroad, in 2021 to Senegal. On even years, it makes Clermont-Ferrand vibrate to the rhythm of the world.
Clermont-Ferrand, candidate for the title of European Capital of Culture for 2028, has chosen the FITE, to carry this economic, social, educational and civic ambition. It is committed to helping Clermont-Ferrand identify and promote its identity and its specificities as well as to renew its image at the regional, national and European levels.
