Update #6

Keep on working! I made a new design for the second tapestry for Uppsala university. Title: The Deer in Nara Park. I dyed yarn in a variety of blue shades, which is quite far outside my comfort zone. But since I have spent so much time with deer in recent years, both figuratively and literally, I hope they will show the way in the future as well. A blue road to a Japanese park … Read More →

Update #5

I began my “post university life” (which ended in September 2017) by traveling to Uppsala and delivering the first of two tapestries commissioned by the university. The Graduation Party, 1,40m X 3,25m, hangs in room X in the university’s main building and will later be joined by another tapestry. Read More →

Update #4

Dear Diary, one of my most precious memories is from October 2017 and the Academic Ceremony at University of Gothenburg. What a grand, solemn as well as entertaining night. I received an honorary doctorate, doctor honoris causa, at the faculty of Science. So proud and moved. (In order not to suffer from too much hybris, the night ended with my black velvet dress stuck in the banquet hall’s escalator and chewed to shreds. A huge surprise.) What do you say? Thank you, life. Read More →

Update #3

My 5 year guest professorship at the Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg, was made possible thanks to the important benefactor and patron of craft, Barbro Wingstrand. I named the book/report about my time at the department “A Tapestry Journey – the book about following deer”. It’s available (in Swedish) from me or online at http://hdl.handle.net/2077/53435.

The catalogue from the exhibition at Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde is out of stock and there’s just a few copies left in my studio. The texts are written by Karin Sidén, Kerstin Wickman, Tuija Nieminen Kristofersson and Thomas Kjellgren. Most of the photos are taken by Åke Nilsson and it is printed by Mixi Print. The graphic design is made by Beatrice Bohman. I love everything with it. Read More →

Update #1

To be invited to Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde, the beautiful art museum in Stockholm, was a dream come true. From October 2017 till February 2018 my older and newer tapestries, most of them on loan from museums and institutions, met for the first time in this retrospective exhibition. I’m so grateful.

Cappadocia

Dear Diary, in October I got the opportunity to travel with colleagues from The University in Gothenburg to Istanbul and also to Cappadocia in Central Anatolia, Turkey. We discussed future collaboration at the Marmara University in Istanbul, visited a carpet workshop in Avanos and the historic sites in the fantasy landscapes of Cappadocia – everything so exiting and fruitful. Wish the wonderful people of this beautiful country a good future. Read More →
