Mini exhibition at the studio

Since we have a lot of beautiful textiles in the archive at Alice Lund Textilier it is fun to take some out once in a while and hang them up. So last week we made a mini exhibition at the studio with some different examples of the studio's work; a Sofia Widén appliqué piece, an Alice Lund drapery from 1960, a tapestry designed by Gösta Backlund and a sample weave of Helena Hernmarck's "Signals". "Signals" is the largest tapestry ALT has made for Helena (82 squaremeter!) - you can watch a short film about it here.

We also display some church textiles - a chasuble (mässhake) from the 1960's and four examples of collection bags (kollekthåv).

Here is one of my favorites; a piece of appliqué work by Sofia Widén called "Geo" from 1960. The printed fabric that it is made out of is also designed by Sofia and is called "Kastanj" (Chestnut). I am currently doing research about Sofia Widén's appliqué work which you can read a bit more about here. Last week I started a new research project about Sofia, so more about this on the blog during the fall.
