Intro
With one foot rooted in craft and folk art and the other firmly in the criticism of consumption, Johanna Törnqvist assembles traditional and contemporary expressions, but also raises questions about the valuation of todays materials. In the borderland between art, craft and fashion, she flirts with the traditional costume and finds in her work the goldgrains in trash and wasted material. With skill and craftsmanship, she transforms it into something refined and beautiful which does not leave the viewer unaffected.
