Week Thirty

I’ve spent the last week tidying up my workspace and reorganizing materials and books. I’m starting a new project and it makes me feel overwhelmed and without direction so to get past this phase I’m trying to make my studio reasonable tidy. Since cleaning up makes boring posts I’ll show some pictures from two weeks ago when my mum and I went on a roadtrip through Värmland. The purpose was to see where some of our ancestors came from but since it was mom and I traveling we couldn’t resist doing a few cultural touchdowns along the way.

This is the exhibition ”Textila Spår” at Sillegården, Västra Ämtervik where we stayed. A really beautiful collection of Scandinavian textile design.

I came home with some flour, Finnskogsmjöl från Röjdåfors Kvarn and a really large exhibition catalog of Lars Lerins art. No yarn, no fabric. Next week there probably will be paintings done.

Margiela at Artipelag

I had to wait several weeks before having a chance to see the Margiela the Hermes years exhibition at Artipelag. First I had the cold, then there was more cold, then no car to get there… still, it was definitely worth the wait.

For those of us interested in fashion, this exhibition was a treat. I had an overwhelming temptation to touch the materials, lift and check details. Seeing Margiela’s own design parallel with the design for Hermes was also fascinating. Im more drawn to Margiela’s own more experimental work, but the craftsmanship of the work for Hermes is absolutely fantastic.

The exhibition runs until 10/3 2019, so go there.

There is a Margiela dress pattern to download at Showstudio, link here. Its quite old and from his overzized collections but Im still interested to see what to make of it. Silk maybe, with a harnesk on top… ?

Herr Morris med tapeterna

Nu är det ett tag sedan jag var och tittade på utställningen William Morris – Mer än blommiga tapeter på Millesgården. Utställningen pågår till 3e februari så än finns det tid att se den.

För mig som har stulit… öh… lånat, av Morris mer än en gång till mina egna verk var det fascinerande att se skisser, förlagor och tryckstockar till de fantastiska mönster och konstverk som han producerade. Jag gick länge fram och tillbaka mellan för stockarna för de olika nivåerna i trycken och försökte förstå hur de hängde ihop. Det är ett helt galet mästerligt arbete som nästan känns omöjligt att upprepa ens om man hade tid/råd att försöka. 

Millesgården är i övrigt en sån härlig utflykt oavsett årstid.
