“It is believed that the narrative about the red thread was made by the German writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe and was first used in his novel Wahlverwandtschaften. In the text of the novel, the narrator recalls an interesting fact: on the ships of the English Royal Navy, a red thread ran along the entire length of all gear (cords and ropes),” says the artist, Anna Savvi. “It could be pulled out only by unwinding the rope and thereby rendering it unusable. So even from a small piece of tackle, it was clear that it belonged to the British crown.”
“For me, the red thread is a symbol of life, till the end. In my work, I depicted it in such a way that the observer does not see where it begins and where it ends, but can only guess. As in life, we never know when a new life will be born, and when someone's life will come.”
