With a strong passion for texture and materials, I have collected a little string of images from the exhibition. Rarely I experience such an emotional rush, when viewing exhibitions. I must say that this collection made me stay in the Rundetaarn for alsmost 2-3 hours. I was very fascinated by the craftmanship of the Danish talents – in great combination of design, craft and art.
I indeed recommend the exhibition, and especially the work of Anne Fabricius Møller was truly inspirational to me. As well as her nomination for the Biennale Prize, her approach is enviable. Her work shows a technique that with fabric and thread reminds us that beauty and aesthetics can reveal from the most simple methods of handcraft.
Anne folded and stitched a piece of cotton, and then placed the fabric in the sun. She put the stitched fabric at a window in her roof. “Only time and the sun know the eventual outcome”, she says. Her way of treating the fabric summarizes the original and natural fading process – or like a miniscent of a photographic registration with an extremely long exposure time.
