|Tiden är rund I (= time is round)|
I was a bit more charmed by Anna Sjons Nilsson´s exhibition of textile art, figurines and wallhangings/collages. It is full of humour, and it´s fun to look at the details; you are bound to find stuff that is probably lingering in those drawers chock-full of miscellaneous stuff that almost everyone has, I´m sure. Or maybe your grandmother had them. I like recycling, and this is a great way to do something interesting with things that would end up in the trash eventually.
The entire collection makes me think about how the things we have also reflect what´s on our minds. Clocks, tools, money, jewellery, etc. There is a leaning towards the female, the woman´s world. The whole expression feels very feminine, but not feminist. Like the work of some crazy granny. I looked the artist up, she has her own, very pretty, website (which shockingly many artists don´t), and I see she is born in 1954; granny-territory, for sure. She also makes textile patterns.
Sorry about the quality of the photos. All I had was my phone camera, and it sucks.
