An exhibition is about a play with pattern in the gallery space where Caroline Olsson and Lina Serning strive to maintain the hand-drawn and the hand's creative expression. Their material palette consists of ink and brush patterns that are applied in various ways in the room and to different volumes. The duo, consisting of an interior designer/architect and a scenographer/costume designer, work with body and volume in relation to interior spaces. They have many common points of reference, but different ways of approaching a project. Caroline works with the human body in relation to the rooms that are designed. She also creates furniture that together interact with the room to illustrate the overall interior design concept's story and function. Lina works with the human body in relation to the stage room, creates costumes for the body that together with the room co-operate to illustrate the play's story.
Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.

Photographic book/catalogue by weaver and textile designer Åsa Pärson. The sample weave is Åsa’s sketch method for creating qualities with different characteristics where she distinguish between the tactility and the sensation of the textile. That is how the material behaves in the hand, against the skin and also how it looks. It is easy to replace a component and get a whole new result, a new surface, a new feeling that sometimes also becomes an association to something completely different from the weaving.
Exclusive from the loom of Arianna E. Funk. A luxurious handwoven cloth for your face and body. 100% linen hand-dyed with indigo, every cloth is unique! Woven in waffle-weave technique for a little extra gentle exfoliation.
These are best washed by hand but can also be washed in the machine on warm/40 degrees C with like colours. The linen softens with the first use and may shrink slightly.
Each measures about 36 x 36 cm

Two looms are guesting the gallery at the moment, a Swedish Glimåkra and a newly build West African style loom. They are engaged in a kind of dialogue, sharing the same warp, discussing the universality of plain weave. Dialogue is an installation by Fiberspace's curator, Marcia Harvey Isaksson. It will hopefully be making it's way to other spaces. More news to follow!Read more
