HOMO FABER 2020

 
 

PORTFOLIO - HOMO FABER 2020


Dear Michelangelo Foundation,

I am delighted to give you this VIP PORTFOLIO with a selection of current & past work 2007- 2019.

I love the concept of Homo Faber and I hope to collaborate with you and show selected textile work in Venice 2020. I am a friend of Ege Værk (DK) and they recommended your event.

This summer I am producing new sculptural hand-knotted artworks with my TOUCH absorbing wool-material in Copenhagen. I will keep you updated on the progress.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch. Looking forward to hear your thoughts.

(phone: 0045- 61650925 ) With smiles from Copenhagen

// Signe Emdal, founder and textile artisan

HELLO & WELCOME

I am Signe Emdal - a danish master artisan and designer in textile materials, crafting soft textile concepts since 2007.

I like to transend ambience and emotion into materials with physical textile tools. This process is organic and kind with focus on crafting a softer way of communicating & collaborating in todays busy world. I move between methods that origins from poetry, fine art, cinematography, design, crafts & music. The soft fabrics has always been a way for me to express poetry in a physical way.

In collaborations I have a very strong sense of knowing, that gives clients new insights and innovative value, next to beauty of course.

I founded Emdal Studio in 2007, to collaborate with private clients, museums, galleries, interior designers, set designers, architects, fashion brands, the hospitality industry, commercial brands, researchers, scientists & artists. I adore working across disciplins.

a free Proces

inspired by the romantic GARDEN

“..intrigued by the poetry of landscapes, Signe combines a free heart with the solid hands of a gardener, scanning ambiences and transcending the informations into colourful layers of textile constructions, through a variety of digital and analogue textile machinery, raw yarns, fibers and photography. Within the right conditions and locations she hand builds materials and fuse old textile techniques with contemporary energy”

ABOUT EMDAL STUDIO

Emdal Studio is a multidiciplinary studio crafting textiles with soft ambience. We build radiant fabrics for intimate decor & accessories, always seeking to create materials with essense and not just surface designs. This might be the key to why Emdals fabrics are experienced by clients like a physical embrace or a hug.

The studio is currently based in Copenhagen by the sea, but Signe enjoys working from nomadic offices at remote artist residencies around the world. She has recieved a very long line of fundings, grands and prices to keep working highly artistic and contemporary in the field of fabrics. Exploring and developing beauty for the world.

Signe is an experienced digital textile machine technician, with an additional master in textile design from danish Designskolen Kolding 2007. She is constantly exploring new methods and techniques in material constructions and performs a highly sensitive and contemporary approach to the matter of fabrics. She knows how to make digitally crafted fabrics and look antique and hand made with a sense of crafted layers.

In 2019, Signe is exploring an old analogue carpet loom and diving head on into shooting vintage film, exploring colours and textures of nature. Nature knows how to be intelligent, we just have to listen and learn.
