Three-dimensional Embroidered Sculptures, made from the tops of used bottles, covered with silk thread by Ghizlane Sahli.
Ghizlane Sahli stitches sculptural embroideries that curve and arch in shapely forms.
Today Ghizlane continues her work with the help of local artisan women. Together they seek new ways of working with silk thread. She has developed « the Alveoles », three-dimensional embroidery, made from the tops of used bottles, covered with silk thread.
She imagines poetic, dream-like worlds where she can experiment and create bridges between her three passions, space and volume, stemming from her architecture studies, silk thread, from her involvement with embroidery, and the environment, from her personal interrogations regarding durable development and the future of the planet.
She enjoys transforming material, subliming it and giving it meaning.
Ghizlane Sahli is represented by David Bloch Gallery in Marrakesh , Primo Marella Gallery in Milano, Sulger Buel Gallery in London, Sakhile&Me in Frankfurt, Firetti Contemporary in Dubai and Lakum art space in Riyadh.
Her work is part of the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London and the collection of the Museum of African Contemporary Art Al Maaden (MACAAL) in Marrakech.
