Hanstvedt, Jorunn Irene


I am working with photography and textile in 2 and 3 dimentions.
In 2018 I will finsh an extremly time-consuming photo-project, where also textile takes an important part. I am “developing” photoes by handknotted wool. It took me 3 years to make the first one. I also experiment with photo transformed to handmade paper.
8 photobooks/objects are also part of the whole project.
The project focus on – time and value -
All the material used in this project are based on 2 working journeys to the south/west of China. I visited “the rest” of old communities, where everyday life are built on handmade and manual work, all close related to nature. I like to question our modern consuming societies through this artproject. I ask myself if there will be a future for us.
