Threads / A Mobile Sewing Circle

2012-12-15 - 2013-01-06

 110545 121211 TradarThreads / A Mobile Sewing Circle is an exhibition and workshop created by its participants. The exhibition becomes a meeting place where visitors are welcome to embroider sms texts by hand and with the help of a reprogrammed sewing machine.

The sms, a volatile message, is immortalized in embroidery. Bring clothes, tablecloths, towels or anything else you want to embroider.

Threads / A Mobile Sewing Circle raises questions about the circumstances under which we meet, communicate and express ourselves. The exhibition includes inspirational materials such as images, books and examples of different art projects on the theme of embroidery and language.

The exhibition is produced by Bygdegårdarnas Riksförbund, Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan, Förbundet Vi Unga, Riksutställningar and the artists/researchers Kristina Lindström and Åsa Ståhl, Malmö University. Read more about the project at:
