flore fockedey is interested in surfaces and the spaces they can make. Her work challenges several architectural conventions: tectonics; ideas of permanence; the distinction between inside and out.
She develops both the embodied and symbolic aspects of her interventions. This requires her to consider the specific qualities of the material used; though she returns often to textiles, her projects are not limited to this. She defines a surface as an assembly of components, sometimes stitched, weaved, or knitted.
flore explores the provenance of materials, including their production cycles, know-how, their local and historic relevance. Thereafter, she determines how they can be resituated, ennobled, and combined. By using existing products and processes she aims to maximise impact and minimise waste.
She pursues this in collaboration with a growing network of textile designers, artists, craftspeople, and architects, believing in the added-value of complementary tools, skills, and sensibilities.
