ELKE WALTER

Elke has always employed fabric as a medium for her creative expression, one which has been evolving from one-of-a-kind fashion to an increasingly sculptural work.

Always pushing the boundaries, her work was initially about exploring the possibilities of manipulating fabrics, adding thus another dimension by twisting, turning, stretching, creating shapes that seem to be born out of a cosmic reef, where the objects seem to move gently with the tide...

Elke has her fabrics produced in a small rural France mill, using old techniques mixed with modern knowhow. There she gets her fabric ideas realized: pleated, twisted and finally dyed delicately on the twisted outside.

In her atelier she sculpts these fabrics into single pieces with a fixed volume, later assembled together for the final shape – each one unique, not two of them are indentical.

Elke Walter's sculptural work creatively references the late Zaha Hadid, a person that she not only admired for her creative impetus, but with whom she had a personal relationship. Elke Walter was Zaha Hadids favorite designer for many years – understandably, as both considered fashion to be architectural. Or intergalactic.

I prefer to be independent. For me this is the only way to keep my creativity.
