amgs is a studio created by Colombian designer Ana María Gómez after finishing a Master in Textile Design at La Cambre, Brussels (2015). She makes pieces that go from wearable items to eclectic functional furniture, often as result of collaborations. The core of amgs is to experiment with the visual, tactile and spatial dimension of textiles.
In recent years Ana María has been experimenting in different ways with textile based on an awareness of different cultural and social worlds. She is highly interested in fortunate encounters between different cultures and ways of thinking, specially where textile has been used as language: as a way to communicate. Her aim is to gain knowledge of traditional and contemporary ways of working with textile.
The relation between textile, body and space is an important issue for her, and feeds into the special interest she has in theater and performance. She had previously worked in the production of costumes and scenography with a focus on the use of textiles.
amgs, is part of the organisation le nœud, associated with Véronique Van Lierde, which produces artistic projects, most of the time, related between music and textile.
