With his pictures, Thomas Magnusson wants to try to reflect the inner and outer world, their expanse and how they can relate to each other. A perambulation between different, strong colours and layers of appendages. The intense yellow, dark blue, red, pink ... Threads. One can see it present but not clearly explained. The passage of time and transformation, the changes of the weather and light, the body of the air.Read more
Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
Inspired by urban landscapes seen from the air, these framed compositions show the irregular repetition of our man-made patterns in nature. Each composition is individually crafted using sheets of layered paper and intricate cutwork and stitching. The paper is handmade by Deepa Panchamia at the Paper House in Fiskars Village, Finland, using cotton mixed with bits of nature.
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.
Welcome to a conversation between artist Thomas Magnusson and Sten Sandell, composer and improvisation musician wth a PhD in Musical Performance and Interpretation. The artist talk will begin at 13.00 on Saturday 28/9, which is also the last day of the exhibition.Read more
