BURN THE WORLD is a tribute to the uprising of the weavers in Lyon in the late 19th century, who threw their wooden shoes into the industrial looms to disrupt production and sabotage the machines that took their jobs and livelihood. 

Sabot (sabo’), in French, means wooden shoe and the action of the weavers throwing their shoes into the looms, is said to be the foundation of the term Sabotage as we know and use it today.

This has been the foundation of the sabotage series shown in Arcway this August, a series of tapestries picturing cartoony-heroines fighting back the systems who left them hungry on the street. 

Special thanks to Corrie Van Eijk, Kristina D. Aas and Kari Merete Paulsen from KMDB, and Claus Hvass, Mads Helles, Ulva Fang, Olka Liva Bruun and Kristian Krabbe.

The exhibition is curated by Lisen Larsen

Massey Fergusson no 35 (Guldfuglen), Denim, Rhinestones
Variable Measurements

Made this denim outfit for the site specific exhibition HEY, THIEF! – curated and arranged by Kulturforeningen Mølhaugevej 6. All of the pieces shown at the exhibition were made specifically for the space: Kamille and Oscar’s farm in the middle of Jutland, DK (in Gjern).

Making the piece I thought a lot about clothes and identity – about who (and what) can wear what – about rights and outfits, about queernes and rhinestones – and about me missing it a lot in my upbringing, where I spent half of my childhood next to pig-farmers and where flashy and extravagant rarely were used as positive adjectives. 

Now I had a chance of living my countryside fantasy, of giving it the sexy I was missing – and of finally playing dress-up with the machines.

The piece was exhibited amongst works by Kristina Fernos, Sally Dalgaard, Stine Stubdrup and Tobias Just.

Digital tapestry, with monkey-image found during research about the history of sabotage (to throw a monkey wrench into… Sabotage or frustrate a project or plans, as in The boss threw a monkey wrench into our plans when he said we’d have to work Saturday. This transfer of industrial sabotage-that is, throwing a tool inside machinery-to other subjects dates from the early 1900s)
