A “Macao Landcarpet”, designed by Florian Pucher


, manufactured by Zhemei Carpets, China, 2007/2018, hand-tufted New Zealand wool, the label dated, signed and inscribed: 2018/ Macao 1/1, 340 x 250 cm. (DRAX)

“Landcarpets” have been published widely on the Internet and in various print magazines worldwide and have been acquired by Museum Europäischer Kulturen in Berlin and M+ in Hong Kong. Each motif shows the world from straight above as we usually see it only out of the window of a plane. Based on satellite images and aerial photographs, each “Landcarpet” is a piece of nature captured to be touched.

A unique item from the “Landcarpet” series, which has been developed since 2007, based on aerial views of the United States, Asia, Europe, and Africa. “Macao” depicts one of the most interesting cities of Asia. The rug is based on an aerial image of Macao and centred on the original Portuguese settlement zone, extending over recently added and developed areas of the city that host some of the most impressive casinos in the region. The rug shows the urban side of human intervention in our landscapes. Thus, grey tones representing buildings are pre-dominant, while the sea is a rich blue, and forests and parks are in contrasting green.
