Birch bark consists of a large number of thin layers. Each year a new layer is created and over time a strong material of wax and cork cells that protects the stem is created. Birch bark is used for everything from boatbuilding, fishing gear and packaging materials to means of payment, writing materials and art. Emma Dahlqvist, Catarina Hällzon and Sofia Björkman all work with birch bark as a material and a source of inspiration. They prosecute a long tradition of craftsmanship, but with new techniques and approaches they bring the material into the contemporary art scene. The result is work that breathes of both history and the future.


Näver består av av ett stort antal tunna lager. Varje år skapas ett nytt skikt och över tid skapas ett starkt material av vax och korkceller som skyddar björkens stam. Näver används till allt från båtbyggen, tändmedel, fiskeredskap och förpackningsmaterial till betalningsmedel, skrivmaterial och konst. Emma Dahlqvist, Catarina Hällzon och Sofia Björkman arbetar alla med näver som inspirationskälla och material. De förvaltar en lång tradition av slöjd och hantverk, men med nya tekniker och synsätt tar de nävern in i samtidskonsten. Resultatet är arbeten som andas både historia och framtid.
