4.Grade
A photo from 1967 found on the island of Radøy outside Bergen. All of the children
in the photo were wearing hand-knitted garments.
The 21 sweaters are used and worn,
collected by me through the years in
different
parts of Norway.

 

 

 

Rewind
The 11.5 meter long knitted dress, was created especially for the entrance of
The West Norway Museum of Decorative Art (KODE 1)for the opening of the exhibition Strikk7 naughty knitting. During the couse of the exhibition the dress slowly unravelled, and the yarn was rewound
around the coil. Something ends and something new can begin.
