Joël Andrianomearisoa uses here the leftovers from the textile industry, the first designs that can’t be used or sold because they are not perfect. And precisely this unperfection is what Joël is interested in: the eternal beauty of imperfection, the accident itself.

From the beginning, textiles have been recurrent elements of Andrianomearisoa’s work. As he extracts all their possibilities, he gives the materials a polyphony that becomes language, the language of a material that lets itself be split up, folded, creased or mixed.

The variety and superposition of fabrics in his tapestries give them an architectural density that recalls stone. 'I like the flexibility of the fabric, which allows all the combinations through tying, weaving, cutting, matching. It carries a language that can go very far,' he says. Complex Horizons, which ostensibly refers to landscape – is immediately dissolved in a specific definition which contrasts with the image we see in the work.
