Every person lives their lives in their own cubic. I have examined those everyday moments in life which easily can go by without a notice. Isn`t it the ordinary moments that create happiness, that are the most valuable?
Focus lies in the beauty of everyday life, where the sofa is the center of my own existence.
The materials used are recycled jeans, linen, cotton and woollen fabrics. Techniques used are textile intarsia, applique, free embroidery and knitting.
Each piece works as an individual artwork but is also part of the bigger entity called apartmenthouse. These art pieces are a bit smaller in their size and vary between 12 cm – 30 cm.
A few of my works are from the same period of time and explores the everyday life, feeling of happiness and person’s ability to appreciate and enjoy his/her ordinary life. The works which I did during the pandemic year 2019-20 and which were presented at the exhibition “Från det vardagliga” (From the everyday life) are Apartmenthouse, Plantae, Above the ordinary and A longing for… to the present.
During the pandemic year we stayed at home; no traveling, no social gatherings, no… Life became more stagnant. When there was no point on planning or dreaming about the upcoming whatsoever I wondered what could I do instead? What makes one happy? I started to observe my immediate surroundings; look at it with a new appreciation and interest.
