vague terrain frölunda

"vague terrain - vague tissue", artistic research, geographically situated in the suburb of Västra Frölunda, Gothenburg, Sweden

This is a site-specific collective artistic praxis and we are investigating into vague spaces through the interventions of temporary, process-based, textile installations in non-traditional spaces. The vague spaces are based on "terrain vague", a concept coined by the architect Ignasi de Solà-Morale (1995). Vagueness is here explored from the point of view of the citizen, the habitant and the wanderer inspired by Michel de Certeau (1984). Therefore the vague terrains explored are small in-between vacant areas in (sub)urban spaces, scheduled to be built upon in the future.
Vague Tissue is the development of site-specific tissues that grow, transform, pulsate, molds, camouflages and play with visions through transparency and create complex spaces that changes over time. The materials used are experiments with the spinning and preparation of textile fibres and yarn. The first year 2012/2013 will be devoted to basic research focusing on vague space, designing the probing activities, material experiments and development.
On this blog you can follow experiments, encounters and interventions in vague spaces of Västra Frölunda.

The process of the exploration of the vague space is slowly coming to an end. The circle of our work are closing and so are also the seasons. The yarn of wool have survived the season surprisingly well and have been integrated and mixed with nature at the site. The integration has created a beautiful result where you can still see the intentional design but where nature has done it´s own work by and unorganized organization that takes it one step further and makes it even more beautiful…and vague…

Wine, gum arabic and rain will change the color of the yarn even more.

Absorption of vague terrain liquids emphasizes the fibre absorptive properties in a clearly visual way.
