Ask Bjørlo - Spent spekter


Ask Bjørlo’s exhibition consists of hand-woven works mounted on the gallery’s walls.

Just as in the loom, the weavings are taut and shown with horizontal warp. Against a background of white linen, hand-coloured wool yarn is woven in with gradated and vertical stripes as the motif. The colour intensity varies depending on the viewing angle and is most intense when seen from the side. Overlapping threads secure the transitions and allude to the technical aspects of weaving. The exhibition points, in all its simplicity, to colours in a woven textile, but just as with everything else, the order of the colours is open to interpretation. For the artist, the works have an underlying message about human reference points, feelings and patience.

Ask Bjørlo (b. 1992, Hønefoss, Norway) has an MA in material-based art from Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO, 2017–19). Before studying at KHiO he attended well-reputed textile schools such as Nyckelviksskolan and Handarbetets Vänners Skola in Stockholm and Kawashima Textile School in Kyoto. He also studied textile science at Uppsala University. In his artistic practice he focuses on textile crafting traditions in weaving, embroidery, knitting, lacemaking and textile sculpture. Bjørlo’s works have been exhibited in (a selection) Kunsthall Oslo, Stavanger Kunstmuseum, Chart Art Fairin Copenhagen, Kunstnerforbundet in Oslo, Kunsthall Stavanger and Sandefjords kunstforening.
