The Future Is Solely Motivated by Nostalgia


Artist and critic Tommy Olsson reflects upon My exhibition When Everything Falls into Place at Kunstnerforbundet in Oslo.


- Sometimes it doesn’t seem accidental that ‘text’ is the first four letters in ‘textile’; things would be very different if I didn’t produce text, but far more challenging if I didn’t use textiles. I’m not the sort of person who wants to bar others from all the possible readings and interpretations a title offers when it’s the kind that requires entering into dialogue with it, but I think these things are some of what, ideally, should fall into place.
