    An Interview with Ulla-Stina Wikander:

    FG: How did you get started doing what you do?


    UW: 15 years ago, I had built up a large collection of cross-stitch embroidery, without having any specific ideas about what to do with them. I started collecting the embroidery when I worked at the Göteborg Opera as a prop decorator/attribute maker.

    During those years, I often visited flea markets to buy props for the various Opera performances and came across the embroidery. After upholstering some chair seats and mirror frames, I started thinking about dressing in something much less expected and apart objects. There and then the idea was born to dress up my old broken vacuum cleaner. The objects I work with are usually from the 70s. I started buying and working with household appliances/items linked to female unpaid domestic work, but I have also dressed sports equipment and tools.  

    FG: How would you describe your art today? 


    UW: I would say that I am still quite alone in working this way. To dress completely ordinary 70s objects in embroidery. I am constantly developing my work by taking on new objects and installations.

    FG: What's your inspiration?
      

    UW: I have no particular inspiration but I like the Swedish artist Peter Johansson very much.

    FG: What wouldn’t you do without?  
      

    UW: I wouldn´t do without my sauna and my winter bath.

    FG: What do you need to feel happy? 
       

    UW: I need good relations with family and friends to feel happy and time to work in my studio.
