About the exposition

The fabric art is made out of multiple layers of fabric, Kosters has cut various colorful figures from fabric and has incorporated them in his artwork. With him, no little piece of fabric goes to waste. In the art pieces you can find cotton, wool and even silk all put together in animal and human like figures. His work is more than just colorful rugs on the wall, he wants to celebrate the value of material that others might throw away. This can be seen as an active protest to our wasteful society.
