Unfoldings


In the ongoing series Unfoldings Malmros removes the floral parts of the fabric from found material and distributes them in space. It can take the form of a "repeat wallpaper”.  E.g. a simple t-shirt becomes the work “Wallflower”. From a distance the work looks like a moth-eaten, or torn T-shirt, hung next to a floral wallpaper, but upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the flower pattern on the wall is carefully cut from the T-shirt. The pieces are gentle architectural interventions that draw the attention to the details of the rooms in which they are displayed. The “second skin” we wear has become part of the walls. Spaces holds memories as does clothing. (Text partly taken from the Pandesia catalogue written by curator Roberto Eckholm for Malmros' solo show at MOCA London).
