Untitled Migrant by Margherita Isola
This exhibition highlights stories that talk about movements, journeys, territories and roots; their storytellers are migrants.
While walking through the streets and during the workshops she organises for migrants, Margherita asked them to create an affective map based on the "geo-affective maps" used in family therapy. She then reproduced these maps by embroidering them onto clothes supplied by the migrants themselves. These creations are the result of conversations and meetings between the artist and the migrants.
The Museum invites you to explore the sensual history of this prestigious textile. A luxury object, still used today in lingerie and haute couture, lace also reveals itself to be an art in its own right.
Recognised for its quality, the refinement of its patterns and the fineness of its threads, over the centuries, Brussels Lace has acquired an international reputation. This highly skilled industry beguiled the grandest European courts: from Maria Theresa of Austria to Louis XIV and Princess Josephine Charlotte of Belgium.
