Artist Alexandra Kehayoglou Creates Rugs Inspired by Argentina’s Diverse Landscape

Textile artist Alexandra Kehayoglou creates natural landscapes of her native Argentina. Her chosen locations are often ones attached to political controversies, such as the Santa Cruz River, or regions dramatically altered by human action, like the Raggio creek. Kehayoglou uses her craft for a chance as a call for environmental consciousness, embedding her memory and explore of the disappearing waterways and grasslands to her hand-tufted works.

Every tapestry employs surplus substances from her family’s factory, which has manufactured machine-made rugs for more than six decades. The one-of-a-kind rugs are often installed against the wall, using a section of their work trailing along the ground so people can walk or put around the woven rugs.
