Line by line

Line by line

17/03-31/03 2011 Lumaparksvägen 7. Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm

Line is the most fundamental element of design, forming a visual language of expression used by artists and designers alike. It has the ability and versatility to form letters of an alphabet and formulates the ideas of the mind through sketches drawn on paper. Everyone uses line in some form or another, from the first scribbles of a child to the organization of society through architecture, travel and even virtual communication.

The exhibition Line by Line brings to life various notions of how line is portrayed both in art and design through sculptural modes of display. Some of the works clearly demonstrate line through constructed patterns or direction while other works simply imply line in a way that mimics a drawing.

The exhibition is uniting the works of 11 artists and designers: Apokalyps Labotek, Argue Design, Beatrice Hansson, Eva Marklund, Helene Hortlund, Kristina Matousch, Mako Ishizuka, Maria Zetterstrand, Markus Degerman, Matilda Nordgård and Vivian Chan.

Line by Line is curated by Anne Klontz and Nicolas de Tassigny.
