Blue Carpet



This embroidered blue denim rug is the collective work of Talking Hands participants and local residents of Treviso. It was carried out in the summer of 2017 in Via Dalmazia public park. This time signalled the arrival of many people seeking asylum and so to increase integration opportunities, the work was conducted within the community. We were approached by many people of the general public who enthusiastically contributed to the project. The embroidery represents a map of the world, it tells the story of a journey from one continent to the other. We purposefully chose to embroider onto a rug as it something that is universal to nearly every home and therefore relatable from a cross-section of cultures.
