Cécile Trentini's Daily Walking Exhibit

Artist Cécile Trentini hated to exercise until she added a simple twist, art making. This is how it went, walk for 15 minutes at a high speed then stop and take a photo, turn around, walk back. She then printed the photo on fabric, collected 100 of such photos and created a quilt. Over the quilted pieces, she sewed painterly elements with thread. The end result is a healthier Trentini and a elegant collection of painterly quilts.
This conversation covers the life of this project to date and where it plans to go.
See Trentini's work on display at One River School in Downtown Evanston, 1033 Davis Street. Opening party this Saturday, March 7, 5-7p. Work is on display thru March 20.
I sew, I dye, I print, I walk, I take photos, I collect, I crochet, I stitch, I draw...
I design and discard, I plan precisely and decide intuitively, I work in large and small formats, I love the rhythm of repetitions and explore the diversity of variations, I define rules of the game and play with serendipity, I work with valuable materials and with everyday objects...- Cécile Trentini
