More information

The present work is the first "Textile Artwork of the Year" in a series of a total of 11 entirely unique textiles between the years 2002-2014.

Marie-Louise Ekman's artwork "Untitled" from 2002 was the starting point and spark for a whole new era in the history of Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB. Between 2002 and 2014, invited contemporary artists each created a unique work at the historic weaving factory in Båstad.

It all started in 2001, when the MMF's prestigious Art Council was established. The council's main task: to select the artists who were invited to create the 'Textile Artwork of the Year', which was woven in one piece at Märta Måås-Fjetterström AB in Båstad.

Between 2002 and 2014, eleven unique textile artworks have been created in the studio in Båstad:
Marie-Louise Ekman "Utan titel" 2002,
Elis Ernst Eriksson "Fluktaren" 2003,
Jockum Nordström "Kusken" 2004,
Maria Miesenberger "Hjärnmatta" 2005,
Jens Fänge "Upstairs" 2006,
Charlotte Gyllenhammar "På mattan" 2007,
Cecilia Edefalk "Double White Venus" 2008,
HM Queen Margrethe II of Denmark "Kustlandskap" 2009,
Olafur Eliasson "The green glass carpet" 2010,
Ylva Ogland Snöfrid "Distillary Pictogram" 2012,
Karin Mamma Andersson "Atlanten" 2014.

The eleven works by AB Märta Måås-Fjetterström mentioned above are currently in private and institutional art collections. Cecilia Edefalk's work "Double White Venus" (2008) is part of the Government Office's art collection in Stockholm and was purchased by the Swedish Arts Council in 2008.
