artist statement

anne-sofie overgaard explores temporality and narrative forms in an interaction between physical materiality and more intangible digital processes such as programming and digital graphics. she works with mixing different physical and aesthetic perspectives and draws on knowledge from different historical traditions in visual art and textile crafts, particularly weaving. she weaves the horizontal and vertical threads together in the loom and breaks the linear perspective in different textural layers, patterns and configurations. at the same time anne-sofie overgaard finds an interest in the evolutionary relationship between the loom and the computer since the binary system of the computer comes from the loom punch cards. this reveals a whole new understanding of the digital system of the computer as a parallelism to weaving.

anne-sofie overgaard is employed by kkart.
