Caroline Lindo

 

 

Caroline Lindo is the artist behind Textile Hunters, the creator of the social art project State of Play and the founder of de Wensmachine. She focuses mainly on making multidimensional networks and creating performance and installation art pieces. 

 

 

She studied fashion design and textile design at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy where she graduated with a woven network of demonstrations and protests. After her graduation she worked for Greenpeace Netherlands, she is a peace activist with green roots.

 

 

In her work she investigates the connection between the visible and non visible, she visualizes and creates connections. She is interested in the ways in which people relate to each other, themselves, the field of ideas (inspiration, playfulness) and to the earth.

 

 

Her art is full of magical touches, social/political awareness and color. The philosophy that moves her forward is that the best way to predict the future is to create it. She has a clear vision of how she wants the world to look and will spend her time on this planet manifesting that.

 

I find a lot of poetry in the creating of rope and networks. Its parallels to life, love, co-creation and human connection are spot on and even tantric. How two strips of textile, twisted around each other are so much stronger than just the sum of both strengths is amazing. One plus one can be three sometimes. When those ropes tie together in a network, the pressure can be distributed throughout the whole body. There is now room to relax and to play.

 

I dedicate my work and every inch of rope that I touch to anyone who needs the healing powers of connection, co-creation and play, and I hope that more people than I can possibly imagine will enjoy my creations.
