The series Winter solstice returns to the sheet pile wall in Værlegata by Moss train station, as Unn Fahlstrøm fills the three 45 metre long panels. Fahlstrøm has used her work with textile as a starting point, but this time using light and colours as opposed to her usual dark, black and white thread. The goal of the series is to brighten the darkest time of year.
The exhibition consists of photographs of thread-based textile works, showing straight, white parallel lines sewed onto a black stretched canvas. This creates a structure of vibrating surfaces, imitating the white noise of an analogue video image. The vibration enhances the embellishment and creates a buzz when the original motive fragments and colour combinations replace the black and white linear compositions.
The project is made in cooperation with Bane NOR. The artists Pauline Fondevila, Jakob Oredsson and Charlotte Thiis-Evensen have previously had their work displayed on the sheet pile wall
Unn Fahlstrøm trained at the National Academy of the Arts, and has worked actively as an artist for over 20 years. She has received several prizes and awards for her work and is represented in both large public and private collections. She recently returned to Moss and is currently showing her work at the House of Foundation.
