Christian Jankowski’s practice revolves around the place of art and consequently of the artist in the contemporary context. Handwoven tapestry, originally from France, traditionally decorated royal and aristocratic palaces. The artist decided to outsource the production in Mexico, at a gobelin workshop in Guadalajara, operating since 1968 and preserving the traditional technique. The carpet transforms into an oversized arbitrary scratch of paper , a copy of a handmade map; an artist’s path.
