Knotting ecosystems tutorial

A while ago I was contacted by Linh Le from Becoming Species since she and they were interested in my knotting practice. We meet and knotted together.

I could not be happier – now the knotting practice has a life of its own. If you are interested in the development of the knotting practice please follow the tag #coknotting

I have made this video “Knotting Ecosystems” for Becoming Species as an open source tutorial. The video contains images from “knotting ecosystems” events hosted by Becoming Species and Extinction Rebellion Denmark.

You can find upcoming events on Becoming Species and Extinction Rebellion Denmark Facebook sites.

I hope you will be inspired to knot together with others and please feel free to share the video in your network.

In the video tutorial I use dummies as the ‘base’ for my knottings. But knottings in-process can be placed on tables, chairs and human bodies.

Remember my way of knotting only one of many. I invite you to develop your technique. Knotting can be done in multiple ways – the only limit is the imagination.

“inside out – outside in”

At the immersive days in november 2022 composer Yann Coppier and I in our presentation “inside out – outside in” reflected on how world-costume and sound can co-create immersive experiences. One of our questions are how does Yann compose textile and how Charlotte designs sound – or – how does sound inform textile and how does textile inform sound?

In the presentation we immersed ourselves in word-costume or entalgled through spatial textiled-costume.

During the talk the audience engaged and tangled with us – which became playful embodied explorations.

Is this Colour?

Værket ComPleat er optaget på KONTEMPO udstillingen “Is this Color?”. Udstillingen vises i Rundetårn 11 Maj – 23 Juni 2019.

ComPleatinvites the public to interact with the textile objects. It is an invitation to touch, to enter and rap the textile around the body or/and twist the objects so another side appears. While interacting, ComPleat wants to ask: “What colour is (your) skin? Please share your experience on social media #compleat_colour

ComPleatis two textile objects based on the idea of sloughing in biology. As a concept ComPleatis a (non-)living matter between being and not beingComPleatis skin tissues; as representation of being in between living and dead – a metamorphosis for a transformation process, being in between past, present and future.

“From Lausanne to Beijing” – 10th international fiber art biennale

Værket Flesh er optaget på den internationale censurerede udstilling “From Lausanne to Beijing” som vises 15 okt – 15 nov 2018 på Tsinghua University Art Museum; The Gallery of Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University, Beijing A.C. Art Museum

Flesh is inspired by classic Greek sculptures. Sculptures where only fragments of the original have been preserved. Flesh is paraphrase over fragments of the body (and the body’s skin) – a metamorphorus where the fragment has its own meaning.

I 2017 arbejde jeg på projektet ”Tekstilteknikker som kostumeformgivningspoentiale”,som er et kunstnerisk udviklingsprojekt i samarbejde med Den Danske Scenekunstskoles skræddersal. Projektet tager udgangspunkt i en undersøge tekstilet som formgivningspoentiale i en scenekunstnerisk kontekst.







arbejdstur til Græskenland

I foråret mødte jeg på produktionen 7EVEN hos Black Box Dance Company den cypriotiske koreograf Fotis Nicolaou og den græske maskekunstneren Martha Foka. Begge meget spændende og inspirerende kunstnere. I juni rejse jeg på besøg hos dem i Athen for at forsætte samarbejde og eksperimentere med nye ideer. Her et lille sneak peek.

kostumedesign til danseforestillingen “7EVEN”

Om få dage har Black Box Dance Company premiere på forestillingen 7EVEN. Et et koreografisk eventyr, om vores frygt for ikke at være det perfekte menneske.

Jeg har skabt kostumerne til forestillingen. Det har været en helt fantastisk og inspirerende rejse – ikke mindst at møde den cypriotiske koreograf Fotis Nicolaou og den græske maske kunstner Martha Foka. Du kan få en lille forsmag på forestillingen her og få et lille indblik i mit arbejde med kostumerne.

Forestillingen har premiere den 3. marts på Black Box Theater/Holstebro, spiller 9.-10. marts i Dansehallerne/København og 30. -31. marts på Bora Bora/Århus. Håber at se jer.
