Embroidery workshop Trondheim Center for Contemporary Art, Trondheim

In relation to the participation of Desconocida Unknown Ukjent at the upcoming exhibition REALITY CHECK that opens at Trondheim Center for Contemporary Art May 14th, we arranged an embroidery workshop in the Gallery on May 1st. Despite a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon, a small group came to embroider. I find with smaller groups the conversation to be more fruitful and open , which was the case with this workshop as well.

These embroidered labels will be an important part of the "workstation", a table that will be set up in the Gallery for the exhibition. The table will have all needed materials for embroidery, possibilities to gather information about the situation through internet connections and blogs and showcase of videos. Hopefully the labels embroidered yesterday will inspire more people to sit down and embroider while they visit REALITY CHECK. During the exhibition period I also hope to come back to Trondheim to host another workshop event.

Thank you!

Best Lise
