Stitching Stories

Stitching Stories is an exhibition by and featuring textile artists Maja Stjärna and Paula Elion. Despite cultural and generational differences, the duo shares a common interest in used household textiles and their connection to heritage and family. These textiles bear traces of usage, such as holes and stains, just as the human body carries marks of life and aging. Motherhood, beauty, and the transcendence of the body are recurring themes for both artists.
