GUSTAF HELSING – ANXIOUS RUGS
I have woven rugs based on anxiety as something worth striving for. On nostalgia, speed, function and masculinity. In polypropylene, cotton rags, sisal and wool. Rugs that are large to make an impression, but are ashamed of it!
It takes up a lot of space in the room, while it’s also ashamed of doing so. The Anxious Rugs tell an endearing story of the male role in a woven piece that is not only about the end result, but also the attitude.
