Exhibition - The Weather Diaries

Textilmuseet, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

This is a unique opportunity to see The Weather Diaries when it appears for the first time in Sweden. The exhibition has been touring around Europe, the United States and Asia.

Sara Cooper is originally from the United States and Nina Gorfer is born in Austria, but both live and work now in Gothenburg and Berlin. They met through the School of Design and Crafts in Gbg and have since been very close cooperation with each other's creativity.

Their work is derived from a narrative tradition of photography with roots in the 1700s and 1800's painting. Unlike the photographers who anonymously wait for the right moment, Cooper and Gorfer direct their pictures. In close collaboration with the person they portray, they shape their images to capture the intangible and shaping the stories, fables and myths that emerged from the meeting.

Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer were the curators of 2014's Fashion Biennale in IcelandWhich resulted in this exhibition. It is an aesthetic and metaphorical exhibition that differs from the conventional language of fashion. It explores inspiration and creative power as well as cultural identity. They examine the inevitable effect of isolation, the nature and weather powers on the environment and people from Iceland, Greenland and the Faroe Islands

The exhibition exudes creative courage and innovation, and conveys something that has so many been spotted in contact with these distant northern islands.


Opening of the exhibition 21 October at 13.
