Opening, experimentation and sharing are the three values of this young collective based in Brussels. For this exhibition, MACOCOÏ presents seven different visions of textile.
Creating for art and design, all of the member focus on the process.
Transforming plaster into graphic pictures,
Weaving with knitted yarns,
Playing with geometrical shapes,
Blending concrete and wool in small sculptures,
Studying body movements through textile,
Translating light into embroidery,
Creating poems about fast food …
Working with differents materials, differents techniques and for differents purposes, MACOCOÏ offers a melting pot of textile possibilities.

We are a young collective from Brussels made of 7 students Master graduated of textile design.
We are first united by our experience of textile and then by three common values :
OPENING : our collective is creating for art and for design. Each of us has a very single process and her own influence. We are looking for breaking down the barriers between the practices and mixing them. Hand-made and industrial, product and art piece...
EXPERIMENTATION : the central point of our practice is the process. Release the creative potential of the material, play with it, and create our own way of expression.
SHARING : we want to create an evolutive space open to other participants. Communicate, exchange to create a source of creative energy.
From its free and composite structure, our collective wants to increase the value of the contemporary textile creation and make it exist under surprising forms.
