KLARA GARDTMAN

KLARA GARDTMAN

b. 1987, based in Stockholm. My work explores spaces and materials I am intrigued towards and our present-versus-distant entanglement to their scientific, cultural and poetic cycles. The handmade weave works as my canvas that I form through photography, print, drawing, sculpting, spatiality and found objects. In the formation I seek tension and surprise within gaps of contrasts: fact with fiction; industrial with crafty; sporty with cosy; traditional with contemporary; silky with rough; logical with mystical.

2021 BFA Textile graduate from Konstfack, University of Arts, Crafts and Design.
