Designers of Ljubljana Oloop Institute discover and document the relationship to a variety of women's topics and in the workshop Body, textile, memory participants will create an abstract textile pieces that document this relationship. The created abstract textile pieces, which will thus become the material signs of specific female periods, will be exhibited at the end of the workshop.

Project Body, textile, memory is dedicated to the exploration of natural rhythms of the female body and the objects and symbolic world that is related to it. The project takes place in two locations: in Ljubljana and in Izmir (at the International Triennial of Contemporary Art Port Izmir 3) in Turkey. Designers of the Ljubljana Oloop Institute and guest designers Solen Kipos and Mine Ovacik Dortbas from Turkey discover and document their own attitude and the attitude of other women (from Ljubljana to Izmir) to a variety of women's topics that appear in women's lives. Participants of the workshop Body, textile, memory will create abstract textile pieces, which will thus become the material signs of specific life stages. Unknown women of different ages, cultural backgrounds, religions will create textile pieces and then they will be photographed and filmed with them. The exhibition will present the final material objects as well as the entire creation process. Exhibition will be curated by Saša Nabergoj.
