WALL HUNG TECTILE BANNER
Printed cotton fabric, Glass Beads, Wood
"Outstanding Performance is a wall hung hand embroidered banner. For all of you who won and all of you that struggled. A proof of success. 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, a strive for perfection.
In 2020 I want to claim the male-coded trophy as a feminist symbol, by embroidering it stitch by stitch. The trophy as symbol for victory has been very much present in my life, during my teenage tennis career. The year of 1998-2006 was a constant struggle for more trophies to add to my wooden shelf, a strive for winning. A strive for perfection. A proof of success." — Lotta Grimborg

(b.1988) is a Swedish textile artist based in Gothenburg. She uses tiny glass beads and various stitching techniques to embroider a narrative, lately evolving around competition, rivalry and motherhood. She integrates found textiles with her own digital printed fabrics to create textile collages, banners and trophies. Through the textile making she feels a connection to all the women out there. She meets them in the stitches and the seams, in the tactile knowledge that has been passed on through generations of women.
She holds a BFA from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and a MFA from Academy of Design and Crafts, HDK-VALAND, in Gothenburg. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. Open Craft (Örebro), Dotdotdot (Stockholm) Boy Konsthall/ GIBCA Extended (Bollebygd), Dunkers Kulturhus (Helsingborg), Konstepidemin (Gothenburg), Galleri Marzee (Nijmegen), Galleri Rosanna Orlandi (Milan). She has been an artist in residency at Boy Konsthall and in October 2020 she will be an artist in residence at Icelandic Textile Center, Blöndous.
