Description

“Resting Sail” (2020) lays dormant, yet sways like the surface of the nightly sea. This delicately structured, hand-woven textile is composed much like the fabric of the oceans today: organic material intimately adjoined with engineered fibres. In a moment of contemplation, the future of this delicate web is under review.

The textile blends ancient wool and linen with contemporary kevlar and carbon. Furthermore, woven into the work are optical fibres typically used in underwater communication cables, as well as polyamide, used widely in fishing nets known to be the biggest plastic polluters of the ocean.

Similarly to traditional sails, the piece is constructed by way of the sturdy twill weave, yet unlike functional sails, “Resting Sail” is woven loosely. Winding threads like trade routes, its delicate structure acts as an inhibition and the quest is pulled to a halt. Instead of voyaging in search of new, untapped resources for the benefit of the blue economy, here is an invitation to pause and reroute.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
