Knitting is a repetitious action, which produces a meditative, flowing state of mind. The physical action of knitting, in which I knit loop after loop, creates a constant mantra, which is expressed in the work. Through knitting, I create a textile unit which repeats itself, connects with itself and creates one whole body. The same two-dimensional textile soon becomes a three-dimensionally shaped textile.
The textile tries to understand its place and its continuity in space. The textile stands alone, or is worn on a human body, until it is like skin, breathing. That same textile conducts a dialogue with the body, so that sometimes it is placed on it, sometimes it feels as if it comesut from it, breaths together with it, and even breaths by itself.
The textiles are hand-knitted with a manual knitting machine. The threads are viscose threads together with hand-dyed silk fabrics, which I cut into strips and weave into the knitted textile.
