In(timate)formations - speculations on the matter of making is the exhibition is the exam work from the Masters Programme in Applied Arts and Design at HDK-Valand Steneby including students from Metal Art, Textile-Body-Space and Wood Oriented Furniture Design.
The work is representative of two years studio based investigative studies and addresses a broad range of questions such as materiality and physicality, the traditional craft in relation to furniture design, notions of beauty in danger, how hand-woven clothing can connect us, how the assembly of knock-down furniture can work to enhance our personal experiences, how textile installations and costumes inspired by the nature of Dalsland and its tradition of folklore can stress the role of the forest in our lives today.
The projects, however individual and intimate are closely related to ongoing societal development. Issues concerning ecology, social equality and production are examined and reflected in the work of the students.
The program is an international education and students with various nationalities participate. Even if the projects are developed on an individual basis, the students collaborate and support each other throughout the education. The result is a dynamic view on issues and topics which are general in one aspect, but reflected on a personal level.
