Hommage à Robert, created with Manon Riet, Fabric, 100*150 cm, 2017.

Hommage à Robert shows the industrial transition of the leather during the 18th century. Starting from the Geranium Robertianum or Herbe à Robert, used for a long time to tanne leather and now considered as a fallow plant, Hommage à Robert put this vegetal in confrontation with it’s current replacement, Chrome.
