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.

Annie Johansson

Annie Johansson

Annie Johansson investigates the extensions of the human body into the textile material through sensual desires. This boundless desire, is for her, about a lust that goes via and then beyond the desire for other bodies. Like the Begin-nuns'* almost erotic relationship to their natural environment, she searches for it in her material explorations.

*The Begin-nuns appeared during the early Middle Ages and are seen by some today as one of the earlier women's movements in Europe.

Petter Hellsing

Petter Hellsing

Petter Hellsing puts materials in focus and is looking for ways to let them speak based on their own premises. What can a conversation between man and material look like? The tool here becomes a transitional object, a tool that extends the body to the world and puts it in relation to other forces.

Ida Pettersson Preutz

Ida Pettersson Preutz

Ida Pettersson Preutz's work centers around optical illusions. She is inspired by the great op art pioneers such as Victor Vasarely and Bridget Riley. All her fabrics are hand-dyed, hand-painted or screen printed, allowing her to be very specific in her colour palette, often choosing vibrating neon tones. More recently though, Pettersson Preutz has explored the possibilities of the grey scale, as presented at Fiberspace during the exhibition -visual-illusion-confusion- in October 2019.
