BODY ON BODY, 2019.

An applied investigation of an unbodyfied knitted sculptural garment. 


The knitted sculptures have a cavity, an inside, a non-being of something, a trace of a body, and the cavity is what remains of a body.A form where there is room for a body. The sculptures are presented without being carried by bodies; they are independent bodies. But the presence of the human body still remains in this non-being form. 


The absence of the body makes the garment become an abstract sculpture.

Feeling Blue, 2016

a knitted experiment that became a crying dreamcatcher



dreamWWWorld, 2015

dreamWWWorld is a colourful handknitted collection and I am inspired by the searching for the dreamworld in different ways. The dreamworld can symbolise an escape from today’s beauty and body ideals and it can be unreal, unrealistic and perfect. I wanted to create a feeling of a magical, colourful and imaginary universe with my collection, free from todays beautification of the female body.
