'Obsolescence' is a collection of vibrant embroidered sculptures by Ulla-Stina Wikande -- an artist based in Sweden. This showcase marks the creative's first solo exhibit in the United States. The event is taking place at the Paradigm Gallery + Studio and it ill run between October 25th and November 23rd of this year.
Ulla-Stina Wikande's embroidered sculptures fall into the realm of both categories, which is why this hybridized approach to art-making draws attention. While the dichotomy is striking, 'Obsolescence' as a concept carries deeper significance. The objects include, but are not limited to, shoes, lamps, bags, books, blow dryers, irons, and more. Each is infused with critical hints at concepts surrounding "feminism, domesticity, and upcycling."
