About

Nadine Flagel’s hooked rugs explore the implications of fast fashion by restaging and reusing post-consumer textiles. We cannot easily measure or mitigate the overwhelming environmental and social impacts of textile production and waste. However, alternative perspectives suggest that snagged or spoiled clothing can enter the creative realm of possibility instead of the landfill.

Nadine Flagel (Vancouver, BC) is a self-taught textile and fibre artist whose mission is making art out of “making do.” She is interested in the repurposing of both texts and textiles. Both practices rely on cutting up existing text(ile)s, on aesthetic and sensual appeal, on thrift, and on putting old things into new combinations, thereby intensifying and multiplying meanings. Nadine lives and works on unceded land of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples.
