Social Fabric Earth Return

Claudia Hill - Social Fabric Earth Return
A travel diary of a handwoven poncho with the keynote of interconnectedness.
Over a period of ten years, the poncho was sent out as a textile avatar to meet various artists around the world. The interactions with the poncho, through photography and correspondence, sketch out the journey and tell a story of togetherness in a world that has changed drastically over those years. The project inspires the question: What is the most essential element of what you do, and how can it be shared in a significant way?

Claudia Hill is a Berlin-based cross-disciplinary artist who makes objects that create possibilities for personal encounters and community. Hill's work developed from a career in fashion presenting her collections between New York and Japan. As her designs expanded beyond the boundaries of the industry she made costumes for choreographer William Forsythe, The Wooster Group, and became a frequent collaborator with choreographer Meg Stuart.
Her interventions range from performative designs to constructing large scale, textile based sculptures, and conceiving participatory actions for art centers such as Centre Pompidou Paris, and ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe. Hill's own artist film Kŏn′voi′ has been presented in several international film festivals.
