EMBROIDERED TROPHY, TEXTILE SCULPTURE
Cotton fabric, Cotton thread, Polyester, Marble
For every winner and loser, the coin always has two sides.
A 100 % hand embroidered trophy from a series of textile trophies and banners made in 2020. Built stitch by stitch by combining several patterns found in the metallic trophies from my teenage tennis career.
The Trophy is a tangible, durable reminder of a specific achievement, and serves as recognition or evidence of merit. Trophies have marked victories since ancient times, first as war trophies taken by brave male characters. Later made in silver and given to male winners of the Olympic games. The trophy symbolizes a body, a shell, a container. In 2020 I want to claim the male coded trophy as a feminist symbol, by adding a new cover in shiny beads and glittery threads. Let the trophy talk for itself.— Lotta Grimborg

Please handle it with care as it is a delicate hand made object! Do not place in direct sun light as it can have impact on the colour of the fabric and threads. If dusty, just brush it off with a soft brush or a dry cloth.
