Craft Rituals

Textile Museum - Closed for the time being, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Craft Rituals is a colorful fairytale world and an experimental multi-art work on the borderland between the tactile, analog and digital. Specially composed music, a 50 meter long film projection, ritual handicraft installations and interactive instruments create a playful and meditative overall experience beyond the ordinary!

Inspired by Norse mythology and the legends of the Norns - the three goddesses of fate Urd, Verdandi and Skuld who sit at the feet of the world tree and spin - the Textile Museum tells a hypervisual tale of wool, women's power, durability and handicraft as superpowers.

The Norns, played here by women in their 70s and 80s, are beautiful creatures with magical powers; they spin the threads of life on their mysterious spinning coats, fix the warp in the fabric of life and maintain the balance in the earth's cycle.

It is a story with several bottoms that is about utilizing and valuing the resources that are around us for a sustainablefuture - both old crafts and fantastic natural materials as well as older people's knowledge and beauty.

Craft Rituals is created by the artist Aia Jüdes who was behind the Exhibition of the Year 2018: Next Level Craft.

Please note that the exhibition dates are preliminary, 18 September 2021 to 20 February 2022.

Craft Rituals is a Nordic project with participants and influences from Sweden, Finland and Iceland. The exhibition is produced in collaboration with the Textile Museum with support from the Nordic Culture Fund, the Västra Götaland region, the Swedish Arts Council and the City of Stockholm.
