“Op.3” is part of the collection “I would not do something like that” made by Ýrúrarí in 2019. The collection consisted of traditional sweaters dismantled from their original pattern and form.
“Op.3” was originally a traditional Lopapeysa (Icelandic wool sweater), but has now taken on a new more open and abstract form. The holes are knitted in various colors, opening up the closed knitted sweater, allowing the sheep colored wool to curl down free.
The sweater is all knitted by hand.
Icelandic wool, Mixed yarn
Black and Grey, Bright
The artist name Ýrúrarí was created in 2012 by Ýr Jóhannsdóttir.The work of Ýrúrarí is mostly done by knitting and working with the possibilities of new visual elements knit can create in spaces and on the human body in a way of illustrating the everyday three dimensional space. Ýr’s creations are on the wide spectrum from hand knitting figurative fun pieces on old jumpers to machine knitting abstract and complex mathematical textiles, working with the technique of weaving, OP art and making dimensions meet on the surface of knitted fabric.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
