LINN REBEKKA ÅMO
Louis Philippe, Duc d´Orléans, also known as ”le Gros” (the Fat) knight of the Holy Ghost, knight of the Golden Fleece. A well-ordered gentleman. He lived here for a few weeks in 1759. Aside from that fact, there are probably few things he had in common with Linn Rebekka Åmo.
But this is the place where she works: In the Nordland Cultural Centre that was a vicarage at the time the Fat chose to spend time away from the summer heat of Paris. She has established a textile workshop on the loft. She maintains order in her sewing kit, but no Order of the Holy Ghost, nor of the Golden Fleece. She collects, clips, sews and glues. Shapes, colours and composition. A textile worker with the attributes of a painter artist. Educated in Bergen and Trondheim. Her NorlandiaART contribution is found in Babel. Where? In Dronningens Gate, of course. Linn Rebekka Åmo.
Linn Rebekka Åmo has her studio in the Nordland Cultural Centre in Bodø.
By the entrance door of Babel restaurant, Torvgata in Bodø: A digital print is hung – Linn Rebekka Åmos’ “That Landscape”, which invites us to converse in a landscape where various visual languages convey conversations that are perhaps not mutually understood?
Linn Rebekka Åmo exhibits two of her textile works at NorlandiART-18. Both for sale in our web gallery.
