S e e m i n g l y   o r d i n a r y 

In my practice I use materials I find at flea markets and second-hand shops. Skilfully made objects created by someone who often remains unknown. Each woven, crocheted, embroidered thread hides stories and emotions.

J u d g e s ’   c o m m e n t s :

Colourful forms in subtle shades where traditional fabrics like tablecloths, runners and towels are composed with skilful precision and care. Swedish home weaves made universal, reminding us of the connection beyond national borders. Recognition is broken when characters emerge in this new recasting.
