My article in the magazine”Feltmatters”.

I have been invited to write an article about my latest exhibition in the international magazine “Feltmatters” and you can see it in the September edition.
It is a priviledge to have the opportunity to tell about my work and the thoughts behind it.
Especially this exhibition means a lot to me and I have worked on it for a long time.
I have made the exhibition together with my friend Guri Lundberg Petersen with whom I have been working before. Her technique is macrame while mine is needlefelt and we have found out that mixing our techniques is a perfect match.
The technique I use in this exhibition is a new technique that i have developed during the two latest years and it has been very exiting to see how much I could express with it.
Another thing is that that I found the technique by accident. I was looking for a textile that I could use as basic background for a needled photo and then I saw a textile that was ment for decoration on tables for partys.
When I started to needle my motive on that textile I could emediately see how many new possibilities there was in it, and from that on I have used it for many of my things and it showed up to be fantastic for me to work with.

This special exhibition that I have written about is build on this technique. The idea was to make a big room-installation with human size women. Guri made long macrame net-curtains hanging from the ceiling and I needled a group of human size women.
Those women were first needled on my special textile and then I could place them between Guris macrame cutains.
When we had finished the room-installation all the other things we made for the room were made so they referred to the installation some way or another. 

Here you can see examples from the exhibition:
