This work is part of the Materials (2015 - ongoing) series. Wandering through cities that are often linked to the place where she will be exhibiting, Miletić documents restorations or interventions that have been made in the urban fabric. This results in a collection of photos of parts of buildings or urban artefacts that have been temporarily hidden, protected or repaired with tape, fabrics, banners or tarpaulins. She then models her woven textiles on these photos. 

For this work Hana Miletić was inspired by a small artefact that is not restorative but that can provide a different architectural experience of a space, namely a door handle holder. She found this object in a side street behind the Antwerp zoo, near MORPHO, an organisation of artists' studios.
