Laura Darbutaitė - New Sweden

The tapestry entitled New Sweden was a collaboration between the artists Bertil Damm and Barbro Nilsson for the M/S Kungsholm liner ship in 1928. It has been part of this museum's display for as long as the staff can remember. For the past year this object has been partly hidden from visitors. This awkwardly hung textile item triggered Darbutaitė's attention. By tracking down its history, Darbutaitė focuses on the tapestry's display, reconsidering its presentation to emphasize the richness of its craft and the silent history this object holds.
