Création du monde (The creation of the world) is a world map of over 250 m² made of different fabrics. The textile collage comprises seven parts, which Julia Krause-Harder created in a work process lasting almost three years.
On her travels and in many research projects, Julia Krause-Harder has been dealing with borderlines and the prehistory of many countries for many years. With her work she now shows her perspective on the world. For each country a matching fabric was chosen; colors and patterns refer to characteristics of the respective country or area. In some places there are additional appliqués or embroidered writing. The different materials are linked, knitted and sewn together. From the different fabrics a relief-like, multicolored picture is created.
