“In Feather-Working, the Only Limitation is One’s Own Imagination”: Julien Vermeulen, Stefan Hanß and Ulinka Rublack on the Past and Future of Feather-Working

Press/Media: Blogs and social media


Feather artist Julien Vermeulen is one of the most aspiring young artists of our time. In his studio in Paris, Vermeulen experiments with feathers and manufactures them into works of art and haute couture. Manchester historian Stefan Hanß and Cambridge historian Ulinka Rublack, whose research in the Materialized Identities project group explores the artisanal and emotional world of early modern feather-working, invited Julien Vermeulen to respond to some questions about his own work, as well as his relationship with the vibrant past of this almost forgotten art and craft.
