When is a rug no longer a utility, but an object? Can objects that have been created for a clear purpose - such as giving heat to cold floors - at the same time be just themselves, a work of art in its own grand power?
With a strong emphasis on body and soul, color and shape, Åsa’s artistic vision and symbolic aesthetics inject a strong feeling of female power in every object she creates, and in every home, it moves in to.
“My work is often a material cage and moves between the interiors to a monumental format where the material language examines the relationship between our bodies, the objects we surround them with and the rooms where they act together.”
”The Shell and the Mouth are two symbols I often return to, as a representation of the hole. In my artistic practice, I am very interested in understanding the hole and the capacity of the cavity.”
