Agnes Hansella creates a monumental macramé installation in Bali
Audio engineer turned Macramé artist, Indonesia native Agnes Hansella has quickie turned her hobby into a full-on career. Hansella studied audio engineering in Vancouver, Canada, and even graduated with a bachelor’s degree in sound for film from the Jakarta Institute of arts. Once she was back in Indonesia she decided to move from sound to textiles and taught herself macramé in 2017.
In a recent commission for ‘Locca Beach House Bali’ set up by ‘Flowerbloom Studio’, Agnes had the chance to work on a larger scale. The project consisted of three works, Mountains, Ocean, and Sunset, each representing the surrounding area of Jimbaran. Each piece was 37 feet wide and 25 feet tall and took 12 days for Hansella and a team of 7 other people to complete.
This is what Agnes had to say about the process. “this enormous piece is fun and challenging for me to work with. With macrame, sometimes we can’t plan the whole thing in one go. The ropes have their own nature and we are the ones to follow. The design keeps evolving every time a knot was made.” – Agnes Hansella (via the artist website)
