TOVE KNUTS

Face mask, “Á la Orville Peck”, cotton, fringes, rubber bands. Swedish designer and jewellery artist Tove Knuts often crochets her work – a practice that has not been all that affected by her self-isolation. She continues to crochet in a calm corner of her home, but of course, even here Corona has completely taken over as a conversation topic. Everything seems to be about the pandemic in one way or another. We discuss the to be or not to be of wearing face masks. Is it an effective protection against the virus? Tove Knuts found them fascinating and began experimenting with various fringed and beaded versions of the face mask.
An inspiration here was the enigmatic country musician Orville Peck, known for performing in fringed masks and never actually showing his face in public.

Tove Knuts (b. 1969) lives and works in Stockholm. She holds an MFA in Metal Design from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm. Knuts is represented at Nationalmuseum in Stockholm.

PRICE: 650 SEK or 950 SEK each.
