Artist statment

Textile is something close to us all, we wear or use textiles of domestic nature every day, in clothes, sheets, towels and so on. It has a constant presence in our lives. It is something that can be easily formed, changed, and manipulated.

The processes that lie behind these textiles are often time consuming. It demands the learning of the materials, techniques, and use. Can the time used, be of value in itself? Of key importance for me is the learning and understanding of traditional methods, to become a carrier of knowledge. As such it is possible to break from established methods and explore new ways of making. I hack these traditional ways of making to achieve other visual outcomes, while doing this I seek to engage in a multilateral approach where I am in dialogue with the material, listening and letting it guide me. It is through this process that mistakes and interesting directions can occur. Trough this method of making, topics such as Time, Decay, value, and the body is explored. A key point of interest is Value, value within material, body and process.
