I encountered a fairy-take which is told from generation to generation in the tribe of Naxi, a culture that is frequently described as a matriarchal one. It’s telling the story of Lere, the youngest son of a brocade weaver who’s journey issues not only to the tribe of Naxi but to everyone. A rite of passage and a central answer on the recurring questions on identity and responsibility. For the collection I was working on a visual language that tried to find ways to transmit the single steps of the journey in an assembly of textile and construction workmanship.
