Stephan Goldrajch

Stephan Goldrajch is an artist whose crocheted works are both naive and childish, yet incredibly captivating. His pieces comprise a colorful mass of shapes that seem to mix and mingle, like bodies at a party or a festive parade. Each piece is animated and features a face, often illuminated by wide and red smiles. Goldrajch was inspired by the Bayeux tapestry, which tells the story of William the Conqueror’s conquest of England in a medieval style, blending reality and fantasy. Goldrajch’s works rewrite history, highlighting what had been relegated to the margins and giving a central place to small details on the tapestry’s edges, such as animals and sometimes human beings. Through his crocheted silhouettes, Goldrajch provides an inclusive twist to the story of the past, interpreting it in a way that is both unique and thought-provoking.
