Julia started to weave macrame in 2017 and hasn’t stopped since. Julia is skilled in many techniques and creates various decorative objects: panels, lampshades, curtains, decorative objects for weddings, and even costumes!
On February 24, the war began. And Julia was forced to leave the house, carrying knitting needles and a skein of yarn in her backpack as a “sedative”.
“In addition to the initial fear and uncertainty, there was still a lot of time left because the work came to a complete halt.
The fragments of the started panel and the remaining skeins of wool were left with me and my little girl in Serbia instead of clothes in a backpack, because I sincerely hoped we would return home in 2 weeks.
I needed to transform my pain, fear, and despair into something light and material to alleviate my mental state a little. And physically feel that we are different. We do not destroy, we do not encroach on other people’s property, but we create our own, new, despite everything.
I realized that I had to create a large panel. It was not easy, because we often moved from one place to another, with others.
I dedicated this panel to the heroes of the city of Mariupol, located near the Sea of Azov. This is how “Corail Bleu” was created.
Julia’s works were exhibited at Paris Design Week and Journée du Patrimoine Culturel at the Carrousel du Louvre (Paris).
