ABOUT


Emma Hasselblad (b. 1991, Stockholm) explores the opportunities that comes with knitting. Through the flexible, movable, stretch that the knitted fabric allows she makes knitted sculptures with the body as the starting point. Emma received her MFA in textile art from the University of Gothenburg (HDK-Valand) in 2019 and a BFA in Fashion Design from ESMOD Berlin, Germany in 2012. Her work has been exhibited in galleries, museums and fashion venues internationally; Liljevalchs (Stockholm), Galleri Backlund (Göteborg), Textilmuseet (Borås), Galleri Neuf (Oslo), Fashion Clash Festival (Maastritch). She has been an artist in residency at Textile Arts Center, New York, awarded the Hempel Award at Mercedes Benz Fashionweek in Beijing, China, and she received Västra Götalands culture grant 2020. Her work has been featured in Vouge Italia, Nylon magazine, Harpers Bazaar, Göteborgs Posten among others. She currently lives and works in Gothenburg.
