In Stine Godt's exhibition, the viewer is invited on a journey - and an experience.
Stine Godt explores how we can understand the past in new ways and use it today. The material is wool and the works, which are both hand-woven olmer cloth and hand-knitted textiles; draw on strong inspiration from Bornholm's history.
The colours and patterns are with great respect taken from Bornholm's nature, and from the Bornholm textile history. With a special focus on and love for the hard life that fishing culture offered to both men and women in the 1850´ties. Research and collaboration with the Bornholm island archive has led Stine Godt from inspiration to the exhibited works.
With her works, Stine Godt wants to bring the viewer down in pace and into the calm that the care, craftsmanship and hard physical working life of the past, after all, made room for. The exhibition is not historical, but strongly historically inspired, and Stine Godt gives with her works a suggestion of how our historical heritage can be encoded in materials, technology and design and thus actualized in a modern life.
