Photo series of the exhibition The Archive of the Forgotten by John K. Raustein

Throughout his whole artistic practice, John K. Raustein has explored the textile tradition as a starting point for associative objects and social commentary. He uses this understanding of materials and craft knowledge as the basis for three-dimensional and conceptually rooted textile sculptures and room installations.

The Archive of the Forgotten by John K. Raustein can be experienced at the North Norwegian Artists' Centers gallery in Svolvær, Lofoten. From Nov 6, 2021 To Jan 9, 2022.
