Tina Jonsbu

Tina Jonsbu recently completed her doctoral work at Oslo National Academy of
the Arts, Department of Art and Craft. She is now working on a show for SOFT Gallery in 2021. The execution of a drawing or embroidery is a slow process, involving and relating to a number of criteria that she partly decides in advance, partly along the way. She sees the works as a visualization and documentation of the process of making them, and the relationship between process and result may seem fluid.

For more information about Tina Jonsbu’s doctoral work «Structures for doing, structures for thought» see KHIO’s archive KHIODA. Here you can find texts and photo documentation in both Norwegian and English.:
