Slaatto, Brynhild


I prefer a sensible approach to materials as paper and yarn. I often work with multi-layered threads to increase depth and increase light and shadow to the surfaces. I build layered-like collages of papers with different structures and patterns.

My work is influenced by Nordic and international architecture, as well as the landscape and colours that change with the seasons.

I’m interested in changing processes that happen with yarn / rope materials outdoors in weather and wind. The projects: Outdoor I, II and III has been exhibited at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, on the barn wall of Dagali, Hallingdal museum, at Vevring Exhibition, at Galleri Rundetaarn in Copenhagen and at Tveten and Nordre Lindeberg farm in Oslo.

A new Outdoorprosject is under way: Utendørs IV – and will be exhibited at Tveten farm, Rulleboden as a satellite program for the Oslo Open, in the period from Monday 22 to Monday 29 April.
See attached link over previous project on Rulleboden:Rulleboden:https://brynhildslaatto.no/portfolio_page/utendors3-paa-tveten-gaard/
The project will consist of a total of 5 new panels when it appears on Tveten gård in the spring of 2019.
I am concerned with change processes, how the weather changes the textiles over time, – and characterizes colors and material.
