In the room of the ritual - about the meeting between fabric and man

Textile Museum of Sweden, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Textile artist and researcher Birgitta Nordström examines the meeting between fabric and man in the farewell rituals.

Over a chest in the middle of the room is a white quilt draped. It is woven in silk and wool. Easy to hold in the arms, roll up, fold out. It is woven for a tender farewell. The quilt is not about death but about life. It is alive for us.

The exhibition also includes sweeping blankets, woven for children who die during pregnancy. With the blankets we can embrace, hold and wrap.

Other art touches on the same theme but in a more abstract way. It is a story of life, loss, death in life. It's about memories.

Vernissage: Saturday, October 5 at. 13:00. The Director of Textile Museum Ulrika Kullenberg welcomes you. The exhibition is inaugurated by Professor Jessica Hemmings, Deputy Prefect at HDK

Book release: In its cover 2017 - 19 by Birgitta Nordström, part four of the publication series Making Narratives, HDK, Gothenburguniversity.

Free entrance to the vernissage!
