ART: SPRUNGET UR URSPRUNGET: FYRA FORMGIVARE — FEM HÄLSINGEGÅRDAR

This exhibition showcases the creative processes and works created by four designers, Iwa Herdensjö, Erica Laurell Hedberg, Douglas Luhanko, and Maria Sjödin, as part of the TextilHälsingland project. They have embarked on a journey through the textile history of the five heritage farms in Bjuråker, Forsa, Fågelsjö, Rengsjö, and Undersvik. Their task was to develop new designs inspired by the textile objects and stories that are an integral part of the world heritage.

There they found precise cuts, ingenious constructions, and meticulous repairs. Strict checks and stripes mix with lush flowers and leaves, muted earthy tones with bright, bold colors. There is everything from coarse wool to shimmering silk and, of course, linen — bleached and unbleached, with coarse and fine fibers. Traces of deep knowledge, traditions, new fashions, and old, by countless practitioners of the textile arts.

The designers have each sought their own paths into the textile heritage. They move freely between what has traditionally been considered valuable and what has been overlooked. A design that, like historical creation, is a result of craftsmanship and resource management combined with aesthetic diversity and practical function. A design that is as honest to historical predecessors as it is to contemporary expectations.
