Strukturbiblioteket

Strukturbiblioteket

About four years ago, Matilda Dominique began researching the secrets and possibilities of the waffle weave technique. She tried out different samples in her loom, varying yarn qualities, thread densities, colours and experimenting with the finishing. The desire to, within certain parameters, explore the technique resulted in 30 woven samples and some larger works. It is these samples and the process behind them that are presented in these booklets. Through photographs and personal texts by Dominique, one can follow her into the studio, into the sketching process, the dyeing process and the loom. Contributing writers include art writer and critic Johanna Theander; archivist Linda Wiktorén and Fiberspace's director Marcia Harvey Isaksson. Photographer: Elin Sylwan.

Please note that the publication is in Swedish.

Textile Art and Sculptures

Textile Art and Sculptures

“Deepa Panchamia’s work is powerful, addressing as it does a fundamental and beguiling characteristic of all forms of life, namely those ever-present contradictions in nature, where the transparent yet strong, fluid and rigid, ostensibly random yet structured so often coalesce with such beautiful results”.
—Mary Schoeser, 2017

This debut book presents a selection of Deepa Panchamia's work from 2004—2017, including notes and extracts from the artist’s journal and essays written by Mary Schoeser. Limited to 300 copies, each book is numbered and signed by the artist.

Fabricate: Composition and texture

Fabricate: Composition and texture

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.

The Thread Wrapping Machine

The Thread Wrapping Machine

Anton Alvarez has spent two years developing a machine that spins thousands of metres of brightly coloured thread around pieces of wood and metal to join them, producing solid benches, stools and lamps without traditional joints of any kind. The thread acts as an joining element, allowing the raw material being wrapped to be extremely elaborate without appearing so. Alvarez’s work has been exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum and is represented by Libby Sellers Gallery in London. In photos, interviews and essays, this book presents the evolution of the thread wrapping technique, with an essay by UglyCute founder Andreas Nobel and a foreword by legendary British artist and curator Richard Wentworth.
