Explore what artists/designers in dialogue with their craft, are asking; ISTHISKNIT?
KONTEMPO is an association initiated by textile designer Elisabeth Kiss. The association is consists of Nordic-based designers, artists and architects. We have an international perspective, focusing on the work of contemporary textiles. Our second group exhibition examines the question #ISTHISKNIT? The question invites us to keep ourselves and our environment open and curious about the field's possibilities. What is contemporary textile? Is it color, texture, sculpture, design or maybe - lights? Is it crafts, method or material? We do not want to give answers but to open up a dialogue about the potentials of textiles. We illustrate what our field is and how we can contribute to the continued development of the profession within the artistic, commercial, craft and research fields.
