Knitting girl is a fantasy story about wishing to disappear and hide from anything that scares us and makes us vulnerable. 

She was born maybe 700 hundred years ago, we don’t know exactly. She’s a fragile creature that is stuck in a loop. Knitting is the easiest way for her to hide from the rest of the world. Knitting is therapeutic, it is meditation, it is a mantra. 

 

Like the most beautiful butterfly, she reverses the course of nature, knitting herself back into a cocoon and then destroying the same cocoon in a loop, a life loop that we cannot witness because we would need to watch her for years.

 

 This project was born as an installation, inspired by the music composed by Erki-Sven Tüür and played by Arcis Saxophon Quartett. 

 

It is created to not have a beginning nor an end so the public can come and watch the performer at any time of her journey.
