For more then 10 years  Ulla-Stina Wikander collected cross stich embroiderys and today she has quite a big collection with over 100 different designs. These embroiderys have mostly been made by women and is seen as kitch and regarded pretty worthless. Sometimes they are really beautiful and she wants to bring them back to life.

In 2012 Ulla-Stina Wikander started to cover ordinary household things from the 70s, like a sewing machine, vaccum cleaner, electric mixer etc. She found it interesting to see how these objects transforms in a new context; the obsolet, the things we do not want any longer, the old and forgotten things. She gives them a second life and although she cuts the embroiderys into pieces thinking they look very beautiful, when the objects has been ”dressed up”.

The artist visits fleemarkets and vintage stores to find cross stich embroiderys and the objects she wants. Some of the small objects like a iron or a telephone take her a day or two to make, but the bigger installations takes weeks to finish.
