Text and textile - etymological siblings

Text and textile – etymological siblings

The Swedish word “text” comes via the French word “texte”originally from the Latin word “textas” (pieces of cloth), which in turn is derived from “texere” – which means to weave. In this pop-up workshop and exhibition, Janna Berggren and Ellen Landberg will show textile works that in various ways explore linguistic connections to textiles. They will show both joint and individual works, some finished and others in the middle of the process, all independent but still interconnected based on the question: what kind of knowledge – in language, emotions and memories – can be gained through textile work?

The works come from a multi-year ongoing artistic research project where parts have been shown in the form of publications, workshops, seminars and exhibitions, in collaboration with Sthlm Craft Week, Tensta Konsthall, Konstfack, HV Galleri and Stockholm Läns Hemslöjdsförening.
