Olsson + Serning

Volume of pattern
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.
