On Your Marks!

18 September to 10 October 2015

Curated by Liz Nilsson, Dyveke Zadig and Trish Belford

An international collaboration between Ireland and Sweden on shared linen heritage, informed by the past but not bound by it.

On Your Marks is an 18-month international exchange between two established groups of textile practitioners; from Ireland and Sweden. Connecting through their shared heritage, Print Block Dublin and Konstnärenas Kollektiv Verkstad, Textil, Malmö (KKV Textil Malmö) embarked on a joint exploration of the techniques and values associated with the production, processing and uses of linen, a rich history common to both countries, but now almost extinct.

 

This interim exhibition offers a window onto the project’s development, which concludes at Konstframjandet, Malmo Sweden, in March/ April 2016.
