-Already a year ago we made contact with Sara, who told us about her idea behind “Places”. She wanted to interview people who had left their countries and come to Sweden. We thought it was an exciting project, worth supporting.
- Based on memories that emerged during the interviews, Sara continued her work, identified symbols, composed features, simplified, stylized.
-The result is three textiles with interlaced elements from the same number of cultures: “Merfida” with features from festivities and everyday life in Bosnia and Macedonia, “Warda” with elements from Mogadishu in Somalia and “Hanaa” in which pattern the meandering lines across the material symbolise the great rivers of Iraq, Euphrates and Tigris.
-They are light, pure and elegant patterns printed on Trevira CS satin. Textiles with meaning and symbolism for the many interiors in our country, where people from different nations pass, Bibbi Nilsson concludes.
-Sara Klein Svensson lived in Malmö during her student years and commuted to Copenhagen. Now she has moved to Ravlunda, Österlen in southeast Scania.
