Claudy Jongstra Exhibit | Museum of Outdoor Art

An exhibition featuring the work of Dutch textile artist Claudy Jongstra runs through Sat July 13, 3013 at the Museum of Outdoor Art. Claudy Jongstra began her professional career in the fashion industry working with designers such as Donna Karan and Christian Lacroix. Jongstra has spent the past 15 years utilizing her unique technique of felting wool and silk fibers together to create large scale wall tapestries in city halls, libraries and hospitals with architects such as Jo Coenen, Claus en Kaan, and Rem Koolhaas. She and her team designed the tapestries and installations for the Dutch presidential residence, the Dutch Embassy in Berlin and recently for the Lincoln Center of Performing Arts in New York and the new building of the Barnes Collection in Philadelphia. Claudy Jongtra’s atelier, located in the Northern region of the Netherlands, controls all aspects of the creation of their processes, from raw materials to tapestries.  Committed to the value chain of creation, they raise their own sheep, keep bees, cultivate a botanical garden and grow their own plants for dyes. They leave no waste, respect nature and exemplify their philosophical values of utilizing local resources and traditional skills. Jongstra’s work is included in the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Museum of Modern Art New York, the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum in New York, the RISD Museum on Rhode Island and the Friesian Museum in Leeuwarden.
