Poleng

Through the collected work of Edith Bons runs the Polengmotive. This is a pattern of a cloth .  In dyed or woven technic, designed with black and white squared forms. These cloths are used for certain sacred rituals on the Hindu island of Bali (Indonesia) . However, the Polengmotief is a symbol of the cosmic duality.

Edith Bons has appropriated this pattern as a statement, balancing between extremes: black and white, day-night, man-woman, East-west, etc.
