The collection is based on a material research on ceramic sculptures combined with stuffed textiles. The relationships that arise, reminded me of our bodies - fragil, dynamic, fluid, hard, rigid, hybrid, malleable, flowing - they coexist, refer to each other, merge or imitate. These fragilities we find in materials but also in our bodies and identities. DANZ relies on local production. It is very important to us to keep the production routes as short as possible in order to gain an insight into the working conditions and to keep the ecological impact as small as possible. All printed fabrics from the collection 2023 are screenprinted in Mitloedi, Switzerland. A huge part of the collection is made out of deadstock fabrics.
all prints for the collection 'you have a beautiful voice' are created by Mara Danz and silkscreen printed on deadstock fabrics at Textildruckerei Mitlödi.
the collection is my contribution to activism, to discuss critical thoughts for change together.
its a dialogue.
we want to find common ground, create connections.
use the energy of the collective, of women to built castles in the air. celebrate life.
