About Birgitta Nordström


Textiles, rites, death

  I am an textile artist with a MFA from the University of Gothenburg. Since 2008 I am a senior lecturer in Crafts at the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK). Parallel with my lecturing I am working with commissions for public and sacred spaces. My current research focuses on textiles, rites and death –  especially woven textiles for funerals and moments of loss.

“I exist in the ritual space - that is where I continue to explore. We fold, we swaddle, we pack, roll, twine and bind. Thread, weft and cloth.”
