Austrian artist Monika Fioreschy first gained recognition for her large-format wall tapestries woven in the Gobelin style, but it was a fascination with heart surgery that inspired her to work with entirely new material— medical-grade silicone tubing—in her most recent series of work.

For Injection Art, Fioreschy incorporates various thicknesses of tubing into intricate woven works resembling bodies, using disposable syringes to inject the works with fluids like blood, chlorophyll, and plant and fruit juices to give the appearance of life. This fascinating artistic process results in works that are highly structured and unexpectedly colorful, as well as strikingly transformative as the injected liquids dry. Injection Art collects more than fifty of Fioreschy’s works in this unconventional medium, bringing much-deserved attention to this new body of work.
