Intro
Johanna Törnqvist graduated from Studio Bercot in Paris in 1990 and is also educated in New York, Japan and Sockholm and has been working with fashion, textile handicraft and ceramics, as well as education.
 

Statement

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 how we value today´s materials. In the borderland between art, craft and fashion, she flirts with the traditions and finds in her work the specks of gold in the trash and superfluous materials. With her craft skills, she transforms trash into something refined and beautiful which does not leave the viewer unaffected.
In her latest project, Project Precious Trash, she takes a step that enables her to take part in the contemporary debate about what we consume and how we look 
upon our assets. Even though crafts have traditionally been based on an original material: wool, clay and wood, there is something else today that our contemporaries have an inexhaustible supply of -  trash. In an incisive way, she creates a provocative contrast between the transience of the trash and the durability of the craft.
