Høiklev Ribu, Ida Aurora

My work mainly centers around textiles, and my practice shifts between performing arts, costume design and visual arts. Part of what drives me is an attempt to create new connections across the different disciplines. I often use traditional craft techniques as a starting point (ex. weaving or photograms) in order to introduce these techniques in new forms of interdisciplinary collaborations
