”For more then 10 years I have collected cross-stitch embroideries and today I have quite a big collection with over 100 different designs. I think that sometimes they are really beautiful and I want to bring them back to life.
In 2012 I started to cover ordinary household things from the 70s, like a sewing machine, vacuum cleaner, electric mixer etc. I find it interesting to see how these objects transform in a new context; the obsolete, the things we do not want any longer, the old and forgotten things. I give them a second life and although I cut the embroideries into pieces, I still think they look very beautiful, when the object has been ‘dressed up’. ”
