Textile works for the auditorium, the nursing home BLOMSTERÄNGEN,
Commissioned by Länsgården Fastighetsbolag AB/Region Örebro län 2023.
The inspiration came from the nature around the nursing home BLOMSTERÄNGEN in Hallsberg. The chosen material, plant-dyed textile with natural colour, will give the room a pleasant and warm feeling. The work is inspired by old gnarled oaks, flowers, and insects in the local area.
The work consists of three parts:
A drapery at the back of the stage consists of 11 parts hand-woven with plant-dyed wool yarns. 2.8m(H) x 7m(W)
A striped tapestry hangs on the side wall, hand-woven with plant-dyed wool yarns. 2.8m(H) x 0.9m(W)
The opposite side of the striped tapestry wall spreads 17 circle panels. They are tempera-painted or embroidered surfaces with the motif of trees, leaves, insects and acorns. Ø 20 - 38 cm
(Excerpt from the jury's justification to the draft proposal)
... The textile work is solid and well done. The solidly worked material has good durability and ages beautifully over time. The proposal will give a beautiful impression with an aesthetic value without competing with the room's function as an auditorium. The work will also act as a sound absorber and create an excellent acoustic environment. The solidly worked material has good durability and ages beautifully over time. The artworks give the room a distinct character and identity and increase the orientation of the room.
