Lotta Grimborg (b.1988) is a textile artist based in Gothenburg, Sweden. Her artistic practice revolves around the fabric’s inherent qualities and enclosed feminine references which she explores through embroidery. She finds her artistic flow in the monotonous repetitions, in the tiny stitches and glass beads that together build a material and form a textile narrative. Through her three dimensional soft sculptures and two dimensional embroideries she examines the linguistics of the sports world and the aesthetics of her teenage girls room. Lotta received her MFA in Textile Art from the University of Gothenburg, HDK-VALAND in 2019 and her BFA in Fine Art from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm 2015. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally; Open Craft (Örebro), Susanne Pettersson Gallery (Stockholm), Boy Konsthall/GIBCA Extended (Bollebygd), Dunkers Kulturhus (Helsingborg), Konstepidemin (Gothenburg), Galleri Marzee (Nijmegen), Galleri Rosanna Orlandi (Milan). She has been an artist in residency at Boy Konsthall and at Icelandic Textile Center in Blöndous. Her work has been featured in Elle Decoration, Helsingborgs Dagblad and Göteborgs Posten.
