Continuing the Rana project







My Rana is not tightly woven, as our foremothers´were. On the contrary, it is sparse and almost transparent here and there. At the bottom, stone warp weights are placed with references to the Viking Age weights found in large numbers at a number of settlements throughout the Nordic region. The peice Rana is the prelude to a long-term artistic research project with the same name, initiated by me, where I investigate Sami textile tradition in innovative ways.
