Object 16: Kiitos II, by Sonja Löfgren, Finland

Curator's reflection by Katarina Siltavuori:
Thread was the first thing that made me combine these two works. In both works the thin lines of thread is very much a part of the work but in different ways. The objects 15 and 16 differ in both body and structure but still they have a certain feeling of belonging. Kiitos is like a drawing made up of stitches where the loose strings gives continuation to the image.

Réflexion de la curatrice Katarina Siltavuori:
Le fil fut la première chose qui m'a fait associer ces deux œuvres. Dans les deux en effet, les fines lignes de fil représentent une bonne part des œuvres, mais de façon différente. Les objets 15 et 16 diffèrent tant dans le corps et la structure, mais néanmoins, ils gardent un certain sentiment d'appartenance. L’œuvre de Kiitos est comme un dessin en couture, dans lequel des cordes lâches donnent suite à l'image.
