    Signe Emdal Portrait

    Signe Emdal, b. 1979, Denmark

    Danish artist, Signe Emdal, characterizes herself as a textile composer, transforming emotions and ambiances into tangible constructions in textile, in an attempt to make a smoother way to collaborate in today’s hectic world. Her unique works transcend their materiality in reference to historic objects, nature, spaces and cultural textile heritage. Her process is both a marriage of traditional cultures and new innovative textile structures that she develops herself. The nomadic journey of textile culture and women’s craft that emerges from different cultures and landscapes and migrates over centuries from country to country is characteristic of Emdal’s practice. Each new work invites a new technique, which takes its departure from the previous one. The individual processes that she creates are called “Fusion Techniques”.

    Signe Emdal trained at the Designskolen in Kolding, Denmark, where she specialized in Jacquard knitting techniques and conceptual structures. Emdal has exhibited internationally with notable exhibitions including the National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark; Gallery Direktorenhaus, Berlin, Germany; National Museum of Iceland, Reykjavík, Iceland; and most recently at the Fondazione Cini in Venice, Italy.
