Text Textil Tecken

Textile is a language. The material surrounds us, literally, in the room and close on to the skin. Everyone could write a biography with the help of textile materials, patterns, clothes or textiles. Text and textile essentially means the same thing. Both words stems from the Latin word for weave, te'xo. Text is interwoven words, textiles are woven fibers. The exhibition Text Textil Tecken reason about how the concepts can be read, printed or woven together ­– as in the original word te'xo.

Artists: Victoria Brännström, Elizabet Christiansson, Karin Jonsson, Tarika Lennerstad Birch, Maria Sandstig, Maria Wahlgren, Eivor Willbacka, Anna Tegeström Wolgers.

Björn Hegardt & Theo Ågren: Toward Gravity´s End

Toward Gravity's End is a part of the Artistic Development Project En undersökning av fritt fall och levitation at HDK, the project is about challenging gravity with everyday objects and materials, but also about situations when everything falls apart. Behind the exhibition is artists Björn Hegardt och Theo Ågren. Their work comprises a series of site-specific installations where interiors come "to life" and flip out of control. Combining photos and objects, they create ambiguous two and three dimensional constructions, often using apparently simple methods to reach optical illusions.

Courage - Yet Each Man Kills The Thing He Loves

Alexander Grüner-Moström exhibits in Norway

1898 a poem with the title « The Ballad of The Reading Gaol » signed C.3.3 was published in England. The signature stands for Section C, Hall 3, Cell 3. The poem was written by Oscar Wilde in exile in France, after his release from Reading Gaol in 1897.

« Yet Each Man Kills The Thing He Loves » alludes to three specific verses from « The Ballad of The Reading Gaol » and that taken out of context, opens to other rooms.

This exhibition is a progression of earlier works. A new installation that explores the gallery at Kunstbanken and the potential within the materials.

Alexander is a lecturer at HDK Steneby, Textile-Garment-Design.

Yushu Souvenir

Amelie Engstrom studies at the master's program in jewelery at HDK: "I look into the fragmental and the constantly changing in what we remember. I work with thoughts of souvenirs as materialized memories. In metal I search for a language that speaks of transformation. I cast objects to rework them, seeking the boundary between the recognizable and the abstract. Memory helps the eye to whole broken forms. We want to remember. My work revolves around memories as souvenirs, how we carry with us our memories."

Opening: April 25 at 12:00.

Nääs Konsthantverk, Nääs Slott, Floda.

Johan Bjärntoft: Ceramic sculpture
