"Over words"
By Claire Der Hovannessian, cultural mediator at Lafayette Anticipations
This tour covers the history of weaving and the themes that concern it (economic, social and cultural), emphasizing the richness of the vocabulary that surrounds it. For Hella Jongerius the variety of this vocabulary echoes the complexity of techniques and materials in weaving: with fast fashion not only materials and techniques have become poorer but also the vocabulary that describes them. The tour proposes to reclaim this vocabulary.

"Clothes and manufacture: the ethical and environmental problems of fast fashion" by Anaïs Willot, cultural mediator at Lafayette Anticipations
Discovering the work of research and experimentation of textile designer Hella Jongerius, the visit looks to answer the following questions: how has fashion become the second most polluting sector in the world? Where are our clothes made? What are the working conditions of the people who make them? What is the impact on our planet? What solution for a more sustainable and ethical fashion?

"TEXTUS EX MACHINA" by Marilou Caravati, cultural mediator at Lafayette Anticipations
TEXO: to weave. TEXTUS: textile, fabric, texture.
Hella Jongerius creates using her own textile vocabulary. The gesture is made, the technique is refined, the machine participates. The foundation becomes a tool in the same way as the ancestral hand. Finally the experimental practice of the Dutch designer is linked to the industry in a visit which glimpses in the past know-how, the present of a production towards its becoming 3.0.

"Textile in volume, from the thread to the woven surface then to the object"
By Léa Grandi, cultural mediator at Lafayette Anticipations
What is the story of the clothes? How to adapt a fabric to a body? What steps and problems lead to the volume of a woven surface that is often flat? This visit addresses the exhibition of Hella Jongerius from the angle of these questions of clothing and the adaptation of the fabric to the object taking as examples elements of everyday life: our clothes and the objects with which we cohabit.
