Museum Ludwig in Cologne presented a retrospective of the works of renowned contemporary artist, Rosemarie Trockel. As a part of the exhibition Trockel created an installation made from raw wool supplied by Kvadrat.
Trockel suspended heavy wool threads from the ceiling, creating an internal space 5m high and 80cm deep. The threads were then interrupted by a series of cut out windows that invited the viewer to enter inside.
