Malin Bjorklund

Everything is patterned. The work consists of drawings, rolls of drawings, a rice paper screen, a bedroom with hand-drawn wallpaper, printed fabrics, dresses, and finally a collection of patterns. They are originals and reproductions and their function is multiple; the hand-drawn rolls can be one- off wallpaper, mass-produced or cut into sections of choice.

Drawing, repetition and transition are methods to develop my work. I think of my practice as the production of hybrids; it either contains several components or develops as an offspring of an original idea. Hybrids are usually associated with the natural world of plants and animals, which are also a source of influence. Through repetition the drawing gradually evolves, and creates pattern.
