Pousette, Klara


My artistic practice is founded in my interest in the properties or associations one can attribute to a material or object, particularly textile materials and crafts conventionally associated with femininity. My choice of embroidery as a technique comes from how women historically learned to be feminine through embroidering, which led to embroidery itself being viewed as inherently feminine. I see a parallel to the way in which certain crafts or cultural expressions are socially constructed as “feminine" today. In my work, I want to create a contrast between the embroidery and the content of the work, which is about the negative sides of womanhood.
