http://exaltcreativegroup.com/testimonials The work of textile artist Vibeke Rohland seems almost like they by nature are playful constellations of contrasts. The subtle versus the expressive, the flawed versus the perfect and the mass-produced versus the unique, are just some of the contrasting themes often found in Rohland’s work. These themes are the results of an approach where subject and method is explored and developed through years of continuous and curious work with the textile crafts.
Through this wayward and focussed working process utilizing textiles as storyteller and communicator, Vibeke Rohland manages to not only explore the possibilities and boundaries within the traditions of textile handicraft, but also to take her explorations to the next level, where it effortlessly becomes part of the contemporary arts. Rohland’s basic use of patterns and the perceived simplicity of geometry, allows her work to roam freely between the minimal and the maximal. Her artworks and artistic expression is described as strong, sensorial and surprisingly innocent, as her sense for materiality creates beautiful stories of and about the fine lines between art, design and craftsmanship. In this exhibition, manifested as a spatial, textile experience. CrossRoads is where the solid textile craftsmanship and tradition of Vibeke Rohland meets the free spirit of contemporary art. Industrial textiles and honest, basic products are transformed into a unique, immersive experience and a story about materialities.
The exhibition is shown at Superobjekt Gallery from Saturday April 11th – May 2nd 2015.
