BJIOS by Audrey Lavallée & Chloé B. Fortin

So lovely to meet French Canadian artists, Audrey Lavallée & Chloé B. Fortin, of BJIOS collective at the (Re)Fashioning Fiber opening last week. The duo creates exquisite eco-crafting of the meditative and alluring kind. Their individual work of embroidery-like drawings and 'camouflage' recycled textile creations is definitely re-enforced by their desire to work in public spaces and cast subtle lures to passersby. I loved our stroll through The Ramble in Central Park last Saturday afternoon, and I cannot wait to see what sorts of collaborations we might weave together between Montreal, NYC, and Sofia this summer.

*"BJIOS est inspiré de l'élément du grec bios qui veut dire ''vie''; on prononce en aspirant le 'j' (comme dans Bjork). Le 'j' est inutile, mais tellement charmant...pourquoi s'en passer!"
