What: Bolster Poster
When: 18 December 2010 - 27 January 2011
Where: Le Petit Mignon, Flughafenstr. 38, 12053 Berlin Neukölln
Who: The exhibition “Bolster Poster” at Le Petit Mignon will show a selection of prints released by Le Raclet in the past four years, plus a small crowd of new soft creatures designed and sewn by Ninon. Both artists have already collaborated in the past and are now, reunited in Berlin, ready to present their latest works along with a collaboration resulting from screenprinting on fabric and character design.
Le Raclet is an italian based Screen Print studio specialized in Paper and Fabric print. The studio was born in Milan in 2007. It slowly became a meeting point for young and talented artists coming from the illustration, design and street art scene. Over the last years Le Raclet has released a remarkable amount of hand screen printed posters, t-shirts and goodies, which reflect the different faces of the contemporary art scene.
Ninon is an italian full time softie maker based in Berlin. She makes "Les Monstris", little soft characters that pop out from the combination of fabrics and shapes, almost always with anthropomorphic and monsterous results. She started making these creatures in 2004, following the need of combining two of her favorite things: sewing and drawing.
