Pierre Fouché: Vreesaanjaende Verligting
The body of work questions the hierarchies of craft. The two that initiated the cycle, Onskeibare Bemindes (2015-16) and Tema en Variasies (2016) are both based on traditional historical patterns. The subtle changes that Fouché made to the original patterns through his interpretation and presentation of them are not unlike the subtle way that many crafters sometimes make a pattern their own by changing a small aspect of it. These small changes add up through time and tradition, and, like natural selection, improve and diversify styles and techniques.
