12th Crafts Contest 2019 PDF Stampa E-mail





On the occasion of the XIIIth edition of Exhibition Market of Lace and Embroidery "Tramando...Tessendo",

scheduled for 24th, 25th, 26th May 2019, Sinergie aps announces the 12th Art-Craft Contest to create

a product with technique of lace (needle, bobbin, filet crochet, macramé, tatting) and embroidery.


Contest Theme




Geometric, perspective, colourful illusions. Shapeless, ambiguous, unthinkable figures.

Mind is sometimes cheated by eyesight and as result of this reality and fiction are often mistaken.

So when looking at a shadow, a drawing, a whole it feels like seeing something that does not existsor not comply with reality: an optical illusion.

The Op-Art is based on the investigation of how humans perceive the space: use of grids,

contrasts between light and dark, different perspectives with combination of geometric,

abstract or coloured shapes allow the viewer to feel the movement and the three-dimensionality

by distorting our perception of reality; illusions describe a misinterpretation of a true sensation.

Hidden things, drops, whirls, tunnels suddenly come out of swirled lines.

Flat shapes that create bubbles or cubes by swelling up or distorting and pretending the third

dimension appears on a surface which is actually made of two.
