Ruggaber, Karin
Bag is dealing with a functional space, to do with a sense of holding together and containing. The piece is made from fabrics such as felt, wool, nylon and acrylics. Various straps, handles, loops and systems of interlocking are combined and multiplied as ways of holding together in different states of entanglement. Similar to the Scarves series, contrasting ways of making and joining materials are layered over one another. Various stages and modes of making are combined, from roughly stitched elements to elaborate details. Bag is closley related to physical action, i.e. how things are moved, carried, held, holding together. Karin Ruggaber
