SIGGI EGGERTSSON QUILT

Siggi Eggertsson‘s “Childhood Quilt” is the jam. It was his graduation project for the Iceland Academy of Arts in 2006, and was featured in Athletes, a Barcelona solo exhibition circa 2007. The quilt is based on his childhood memories, and is made out of 10,000 pieces.

I’m feeling the object itself, which is probably the most badass quilt ever. But what I dig even more is the idea that we live in a world where a basketball player in Chicago made a such dominating impression on a little kid 3,000 miles away in a small town on the Northern coast of Iceland. That’s why this is my 4th of July post. GO AMERICAN CULTURE!


thanks Olivia!
