Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
Maja Svensdotter combines her background in furniture design and cabinet making with her education in spatial design to create sculptural pieces of upholstered furniture. She experiments with patterned fabrics, mainly ticking, cutting through the stripes and patching them back together, letting them meet in other ways than they met in the loom. In this way she composes her own patterns, at times psychedelic, at times subtle offsets. Form and surface are intimately intertwined. For her exhibition at Fiberspace, Maja is producing entirely new work inspired by totem poles and stuffed animals.Read more
Karine Jollet is a French artist who lives in Paris. Her textile sculptures and installations focus on the body in its multiple dimensions. She uses old fabrics that are then stitched by hand and filled with polyester. Her universe is composed of heads, arms, feet, organs, bones, mythologic animals, trees, connected human figures etc... White is the unifying base for the physical to the symbolic in an allegoric vision of life.Read more
