A major part of Ladik’s work is associated with music that essentially addresses relations between sound and the woman’s body. The current exhibition presents a selection of her sewing pattern collages and sewn textiles realized between the mid-seventies until nowadays.

In her collages, scores and visual poems, sewing patterns cut out of women’s fashion magazines appeared in the mid-seventies and created both a feminine and feminist visual material. Meant to be performed according to the text written on it as well as its shape but not being defined by norms of musical notation, each collage is both a visual poem and an improvisative phonic piece, and is presented alongside its phonic interpretation by the artist.
