The pieces included in Laces & Surges borrow imagery from Coptic textile patterns. By doing so Taguti has adopted a form that can be edited, supplemented, and ultimately distorted, as the Coptic fabrics have multiple meanings and multiple lives. They are a palimpsest that provide the basis for an infinite series of adaptations and reincarnations, as their borrowed symbols begin to disappear under the additions and modifications of Taguti. Half erased and partially magnified, Taguti creates a new meaning and a new secret, perhaps sacred, language. Where once there was the face of a saint, we see a benign Lenin or the famous Rodchenko image of Lilya Brik, a thoroughly Soviet siren and muse.
