Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


During 2015 and 2016, KKV-Textiltryck Malmö has worked on a collaboration project with the Irish print shop Print Block from Dublin / Ireland. 15 artists have been involved in the development of On Your Marks. The project has focused on comparisons around the history of the flax in both countries. In the artistic process we have worked with poetry, sound, image and objects. In the fall of 2015, an exhibition opened at the R-Space Gallery in Lisburn, Ireland. Parts of this step in the project will be shown at the exhibition, but also newly produced works.

Project managers have been Dyveke Zadig / Sweden and Liz Nilsson / Ireland. Other contributing artists are Margareta Bergstrand, Pernille Holm, Kajsa Lindh, Margareta Heijkenskjöld Holmgren, Josabet Werkmäster, Olga Tiernan, Jennifer Phelan, Caroline Ryan, Ursula Celano, Aoife Cahill and Trish Belford. Sharon Adams documentation and David Littler audio.

The project has been implemented with support from Kultur Skåne, iaspis, Crafts Council and Ulster University.
