Gudrun Hasle

Working in various mediums, such as embroidery, banners, photography and video, Gudrun Hasle's works are based on her own experiences. Diagnosed dyslectic, she is alienated from communicating and decoding written statements in everyday life. Despite this, she confesses her daily concerns to the beholder, through simple, but misspelled sentences embroidered in textile, making her works present and almost unbearably relevant. Difficultly decoded, it makes the viewer feel dyslectic and turns around the power relation. The use of textile emphasise the clear reference to the womanly art practises such as the feminist art from the 1970's and the earlier tradition of needlework. This way, she connects the dyslexia with the experience of living up to the woman identity - another kind of communicating with the surroundings in an expected correct way. Thus it reflects the norms in the society and the feeling of being incapable of following them.
