Stephan Goldrajch

Stephan Goldrajch (born in 1985 in Ramat Gan in Israel), lives and work in Brussels. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels then at La Cambre in the sculpture department, as well as at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. 

 

Inspired by ancestral traditions, rites and techniques used by craftsmen, he is fascinated by human and social interactions. Using a crochet hook and different threads – his favorite medium – he draws on the codes of life and learning, magic, tales and legends; all the very real, often irrational elements that make up part of man’s learning process and reinvents them all. Goldrajch often uses wool and cotton as a medium for his works. For the artist, assembling coloured threads offers him the chance to disconnect from external stimuli and enter his own private bubble. Creating by crocheting becomes a ritual in its own right. The result is a collection of talismans that are the fruit of a long ritualistic and meditative process during which he weaves threads in complex compositions that teem with colours and textures. The imaginary world into which Stephan Goldrajch plunges us is populated by small textile creatures and vegetation; it is rich in fantasy, it is joyful and even regressive taking us into a journey into the past and the games we played as children or the drawings we made.
