Inger Blix Kvammen
Inger Blix Kvammen’s work deals with topics such as migration and cultural exchange across borders, particularly in the context of Indigenous cultures in the Barents region. She has developed a unique method of using textile techniques such as crochet, weaving, and metal embroidery that conceptually combines decorative shapes, like necklaces or bracelets, with stories and symbolic elements. Impressions of meetings with people and cultures are expressed with forms, basic material, craftsmanship, and conceptual performance, and by combining and incorporating different materials and photography.
For many years, Inger Blix Kvammen was represented by Electrum Gallery, London. She has had a number of exhibitions at home and abroad and received scholarships from, amongst others; the Arts Council Norway, Finnmark County and the Sami Artists’ Union. Her work has been acquired by the North Norwegian Art Museum, the Sami Parlament, Sami Collections, Arts Council Norway, the Sparebank Foundation and several other public and private bodies.
