A RETROUVIANS FAVOURITE STOCK

Angelika, book keeper and accounts department since 2010.
Favourite piece - Mid Century French Tapestry with Bulls
Angelika came to the UK in 1971 from Bavaria in Germany. She worked at Chelsea Physic Garden and at the English Garden School before joining Retrouvius in 2010. An accountant by day, she is an acclaimed poet and performer by night. Appearing at festivals across the country such as Secret Garden Party, Glade and Glastonbury. Most memorably singing Mac the Knife on the same stage as Charlie Chaplin at the Hackney Empire. 

Angelika’s favourite piece of stock is the Mid Century French Tapestry with Bulls, apart from being from her favourite era (a mid century girl herself) it is the style of the art she adores so much. The artist, Pierre de Berroeta a Parisian 20th Century abstract artist, was a new discovery for her and bold textile art is something that she has always enjoyed. 

Berroeta’s tapestries were woven using mechanical weaving. This reduced the costs and allowed for his art works to be accessible and affordable. “It would be displayed pride of place on the wall opposite my Picasso bull print. Which hangs above my fireplace.”

Textiles can soften a space, when hung on the wall they create warmth and quietness to a room. A decorative textile such as the Mid Century French Tapestry with Bulls is a practical interior solution, as well as, beautiful. 

Needless to say, Angelika’s wiry haired dachshund side kick Lola’s favourite piece of stock is the very low vehicle seat…
