Through the work of the hand using textile materials and craft techniques, Ulrika aims to investigate how architecture can be given a textile embodiment, as an alternative to what architecture is generally considered to be. Her ambition is to investigate how the characteristics often associated with textiles, such as narrative storytelling, culture-bearing and tactility can contribute new insights. Can architecture be textile? Can textile be architecture?
Ulrika will attempt to answer these questions through a physical installation in the gallery and a presentation of her on-going research. In addition to that, Fiberspace is pleased to invite textile designer Akane Moriyama and the head of Research and Development at White Architects, Malin Zimm to converse with Ulrika about these ideas. We’re happy to be co-hosting the talk with Algrens Sidenväveri where Ulrika has, together with Margot Barolo created an auditorium of silk and wool. The talk will be held on the 15/3-2017 starting at 18:00. The space seats 55 persons so book your spot here as soon as possible. The talk is free of charge.
