Project realised as part of a partnership with Garner-Thiebaut and HEAR school, december 2016.
The convivial moment of meal is meeting Greek myths, which are a symbol of oral transmission and sharing.
Thus Greek myths are inviting themselves to the table on tablecloth. To allow each person around the table to get one piece of the story, that latter is fragmented around the table. To form a collection with the most famous myths, each tablecloth would correspond to one part of it. Each product has its own story-telling packaging, explaining the illustrated myth.
For this illustration, the myth used is the kidnapping of Persephone, which explained the four seasons existence.
Prototype weaved on jacquard loom at Garnier-Thiebaut company, white cotton warp and black weft. tablecloth 180x180cm and napkins 40x40cm.
