Wall Hanging, Goliath, 2015
Founded by Jorge Lizarazo (Colombian, b. 1968), Hechizoo is a weaving atelier that produces textiles for rugs, upholstery, window treatments, and architectural meshes. Hechizoo mixes indigenous natural fibers—such as jute, raw silk, and wool—with unconventional materials—such as copper, twine, and steel wire—resulting in textiles that filter and reflect light. Goliath is a woven ode to the imperiled rainforest. The piece incorporates the scales of the pirarucú (the largest fish in the Amazon) and the quills of the porcupine (who drops her spines to mate with her partner).
