Joana Schneider Sustainable art

Joana Schneider creates spacious installations and sculptural environments that present a sustainable contact with organic materials while shedding light on local creativity and industry. Schneider’s material-based approach pays tribute to labour-intensive techniques and makes the Dutch craftsmen central means throughout her oeuvre. Her intuitive working process is inspired by traditional working practices such as netmaking in the fisheries sector or roof thatching with reed.



Joana Schneider Materials

Schneider’s playful use of exceptional materials merges with her love for the textile craft. Techniques such as embroidery, crochet, and tapestry making became her speciality whereby combining them with traditional techniques of netmaking such as the sailmaker‘s palm, pluis netting and dolly knotting. Her spacious, sometimes uncanny installations appeal to the viewers’ senses in many respects: visually, tactically and through it natural smell.
