Danish Modern, Suzanne Swannie Textil


This retrospective publication documents the weavings and textile installations of Suzanne Swannie. Since the 1970s the Danish-born artist has created functional textiles, tapestries and large architectural installations for private and public environments. Both the woven works and the constructions display the “Danish Modern” principle of repetition of modular units as a means of generating surfaces and structures, with a typical emphasis on rich colour harmonies. Swannie moves adroitly between industry, craft and the art world, gaining from each, apologizing to none. The authors situate Swannie’s work in relation to historical modernism and provide a chronology of the artist’s 40-year career.
