Stories About / Stories About

Textilmuseet, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

FAS (Fiber Art Sweden) Exhibition Stories About /Stories About we meet by works where the textile materials and methods are used artistically to understand, discuss and describe time. It can be cultural, social and political. The exhibition shows how textiles not only are told through time - but also how textiles tell about the time we live in.

In textile works, parameters that are about time are often lifted. Stitches have been added to stitches, a fabric has slowly emerged, a note has been carefully joined together with another patch - as a viewer we get some sort of understanding for all these hours this presentation has taken. There is a visible intelligibility in the appearance of a textile work. Time becomes a frozen state that exists there materialized in the work.

In the exhibition Stories about /Stories About, this gaze is on the relation of time to the textile making present. But textile materials also have another ability toconnected to just the time. We surround ourselves through our lives with textiles, in our clothes, in our homes. The nature of the textiles being so intimately linked to us as human beings makes them inexorably carriers of memories, associations and meanings - the textiles are loaded with just that time.

Invited artists: Hildur Bjarnadottir, Elizabet Christiansson, Maria Wahlgren, Maria Hägglund, Aida Miron, Monica Nilsson, Johan Strandahl and Serhed Waledkhani.

Curator: Inger Bergström
