Constructions, at DX Museum, Toronto

My three round tapestries at the left wall from the traveling exhibition of Norwegian craft called “Constructions” at DX Museum in Toronto.

This exhibition of contemporary Norwegian arts and crafts is based on the concept of “construction” – in the sense of the way something is put together. The term is used in many fields, including architecture, engineering and geometry, music and language. In the field of arts and crafts, “construction” is used to describe methods for both building three-dimensional forms and creating patterns in surfaces, or a fusion of these. There are many construction methods, ranging from work on a single object to the joining of different elements.
