Hana Miletić (*1982, Zagreb, lives and works in Brussels) reflects on issues of representation and social reproduction, by making linkages between photography and weaving. The artist models her woven textiles after her photographs that document repairs in public space. Miletić uses the weaving process – which requires considerable time and dedication – as a way to counteract certain economic and social conditions at work, such as acceleration, standardisation and transparency. Our presentation features one hand-woven textile from her on-going series “Materials” that are based on images of broken car parts, doors, windows or buildings that were mended in creative, improvised ways by their owners, mostly by means of tape. Approaching the medium of weaving as a metaphorical act, Miletić weaves gestures of care and repair through which she consciously deals with the encountered states of loss and neglect.
