With the loom as a weapon

National Museum of Norway · Mardi8

This installation is on display at the National Museum of Norway (Nasjonalmuseet).
Hannah Ryggen is a Norwegian textile artist who lived most of her life on a farm on a Norwegian fjord. Although geographically isolated, she closely followed the rise of fascism in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s, and created artworks — monumental tapestries — in direct response to the tragedies of the world.
Using newspaper cuttings, this interactive device traces the artist's point of view and reconstructs her growing anxiety about the approaching war.
