Exhibition: Broderi Nu

Last weekend I went to a small but interesting exhibition about contemporary embroidery outside of Stockholm, "Broderi Nu" in Österåkers konsthall. There were both young and old, experienced and new artists participating and I am happy to see that there is a lot going on in the embroidery field at the moment. There were eight artists represented, Lillevi Hultman, Anne Löser Sörensen, Kicken Ericson, Teresa Oscarsson, Jennie McMillen, Tabea Dürr, Karin Holmberg and Renée Rudebrant. I especially liked Jennie McMillen's piece "Samlingsplats" ("Meeting Point"), Teresa Oscarsson's wonderfully mysterious work and Karin Holmberg's embroidered life story of M.O.D. (a fictional women called Marta Olofsdotter).
