6 000 000 STING exhibition opeing

By spotogspindel | February 25, 2017

Bømlo art group asked to show my embroidery exhibition, and today was the opening. Here are just a few photos from the exhibition:


Trine, the leader of the group, opened the exhibition.


Some of the work is redesigned wool needlepoint. Other pieces are guerilla-inspired. Yet other pieces are portraits made by fabric-printing, appliqué and machine embroidery.


There are several styles and lots of color, all giving a view into the possibilities of embroidery.


The curator took my Prayer-carpet down from the wall and put it on the floor. This was an eye-opener even for me. I think the exhibit of this one piece was made a lot more political, just by this one difference, the associations lead you in a different direction.


Family-members used as models.


Ingrid Leithaug Mjanger and Simon Madsen played so beautifully at the opeing!

    Lovely, and it makes me happy that the curator was willing to use your art to encourage political thought. 🙂
