On Thursday, April 13, Espace Fxmme is working on the curtains by practicing weaving, embroidery and patchwork making as a process of sharing skills, memories and stories of our bodies in diaspora/moves.

About Getting Softer

Getting Softer (chapter 4 of Talk with the walls), is a series of workshops on different textile techniques that took place on the Thursday meetings of Espace Fxmme, aiming to create softer vessels of hospitality for the community of Globe Aroma.

The elements will be used inside globe aroma but more importantly they will weave a nomadic space, in the form of a tent, that will travel around, manifesting and hosting a safer, intimate space of exchange for wxmen and non binary people in the public sphere, art institutions and wxmen spaces.

  • ESPACE FXMME – WOMXN SPACE, created shortly before the pandemic, is a time-based space taking place every Thursday within Globe Aroma. It is a platform for female/non-binary artists and creatives to create safer space in an environment previously dominated by a male presence.
  • Espace Fxmme is Anna Housiada, Shilemeza Prins, Mimouna Amri, Hafize Azimi, Shorena Noniashvili, Elli Vassalou, Ifrah Yusuf, Salimata Conde, Jasmien De Ryck, Clara de Vos, Mirra Markhaeva, Sahra Abdikarin, Taziri Alomrani, Soumaya Mahroug, Kaatje Vermeiren, Mona Cornelis, Joan Somers Donnely, Larisa Utesheva, Maria Muehombo, Zam Zadeh, Pascale Felten, Bruna Esperi, Barbara Prada, Latifa, Christina Phoebe, Stelios Vassalos, Deborah Williams and more.
