Plan for a Rug #ArtistImpression reflects on stereotypes of art making, and features motifs of pens, pencils and perspectival lines. The drawing is also a proposal for an art work in the form of a rug. Eldret has recently spent time in a Zapotec community in Mexico, where she has designed and commissioned a series of woollen rugs that combine her own observations and research interests with the makers’ life stories and anecdotes. This works relates to Eldret's project which opens and closes the Fig 2 programme at ICA, London.
