Richard Hutten's "Playing with Tradition" Oriental Rugs

"For already many years I had the idea to do something with traditional oriental carpets. I have an antique Persian carpet at my home, which I still find the best carpets to have. The idea behind the carpet was to build a bridge between the old and the new, east meets west. From this starting point I looked at various ways to give a reinterpretation. In my previous work I also used existing forms which I than reinterpret. For the carpet I did research in the various patterns available. Than I came up with the idea to stretch the carpet a certain point. I found out it's very important where to start the stretching. On the traditional side I kept the fringes, on the contemporary side I made a clear cut." - Richard Hutten
