Fashion, carpets and contemporary art
In this issue of Norwegian Crafts Magazine, we take a look at various forms of textile art.
Henrik Vibskov – maker of universes
The multi-disciplinary Danish artist Henrik Vibskov (b. 1972) is always newsworthy for one reason or another. In 2011 he won the coveted Torstein and Wanja Söderberg Prize. In the spring of 2014 he created the costumes for Alexander Ekman’s A Swan Lake at Oslo’s Opera House. Just recently he held a solo exhibition at the Design Museum in Helsinki, and in June of this year, he showcased his latest collection at Paris Fashion Week. The magazine Kunsthåndverk caught up with him betwixt and between his many projects.
From soft surfaces to political concepts
Caroline Achaintre, an artist who participated in Decorum: Carpets and Tapestries by Artists at the Musee D’art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, shares personal reflections on the exhibition.
