STOCKHOLM.- Andréhn-Schiptjenko Paris recently opened the group exhibition Weaving, Stitching, Painting, featuring works by Amine Habki, Mukenge/Schellhammer and Linnéa Sjöberg. The opening took place on Saturday December 2, in the presence of artists Amine Habki and Linnéa Sjöberg.

Weaving, Stitching, Painting aims to explore the intersection of textiles, painting and socio-political narratives. Through the lens of fabric, threads, and various textile techniques, the exhibition looks at many facets of the textile, from the industrially produced to the physical traces, and occasionally the expertise, of the hand, in particular looking at its position within an expanded field of painting as well as a conveyor of political and societal narratives.

Historically textiles have many times carried a strong narrative tradition, used as a tool for activism, conveying resistance, empowerment and solidarity and thus been a vehicle for lesser told or untold stories. Exploring themes of gender, race, and cultural heritage, textiles can be a potent vehicle for social commentary and a canvas for expressing and questioning societal norms.

The exhibition invites viewers to reconsider the traditional boundaries that separate painting and sculpture from textile works by showcasing artworks that transcend the boundaries of traditional categorizations, defying easy classification and adding new layers of depth and complexity.

Amine Habki, a visual artist born in Nantes in 2000 and a graduate of the École nationale supérieure d'art de Paris-Cergy, explores missed bodies through vibrant textile works. Influenced by his Franco-Moroccan identity, he deconstructs traditional representations of masculinity using embroidery and diverted objects. Winner of several awards in 2022, his creations, a mix of painting, sculpture and textile design, reveal micro-narratives linked to his quest for identity.

Mukenge/Schellhammer, a duo formed by Christ Mukenge (born 1988 in Kinshasa) and Lydia Schellhammer (born 1992 in Konstanz, Germany), transcends cultural and artistic boundaries, exploring the realities of Europe and the Democratic Republic of Congo through a variety of media. Their subjective approach to contemporary issues is expressed in works influenced by Congolese pictorial traditions and international movements. Their collaboration challenges binary categorizations, offering a fragmented perspective on globalization, postcolonialism and interculturality.

Berlin-based Swedish artist Linnéa Sjöberg (born 1983 in Strömsund, Sweden) creates energetic, colorful tapestries that function as textile archives. Inspired by Nordic mythology and her family heritage, she sees weaving as a means of archiving the past, present and potential futures. Her performative research explores a variety of identities, using textiles to take on roles such as businesswoman, tattoo artist and Viking woman. Her work, exhibited internationally, questions the relationship between personal identity and artistic creation.
