Anne Bjørn talks about her artistic practice and methods

– everything told and illustrated through series of pictures.

The subject of a lecture could be:


New works – Transparent weave and laser cut

Takes as its focus the most recent works, both transparent weaves and laser cut patterns, and how these combine with other expressions and emanating from textile as medium.

Shows a series titled Combined Patterns and a series with drawings and laser cut paper. Includes a description of Danish Art Workshops, where some of the works were made.


Artistic Methods

On selected works, techniques, work methods and temporary studios.

Focus is on works made in temporary studios:

Talk about projects made during her stay at  Nordic Artists´ Centre Dale, Norway, and in Nuuk, Greenland, where for the past 12 years Anne Bjørn has been visiting lecturer at the Visual Arts programme, Nuuk College of Art, Greenland.

Also talk about works made at Danish Art Workshops in Copenhagen.

All site references are accompanied by photos of the surroundings in relation to how impressions are transformed to artistic expression..


THREAD – endless possibilities

Illustrated through textile works where the “pure” thread carries or makes up a large part of the expression.

Photos of works of selected artists and textile works from the International Art Exhibition in 2017, La Biennale di Venezia.

Examples are shown of own work and how weave and laser cut patterns combine and also other expressions with textile as starting point.
