Susanne Nørregård Nielsen 

Pencil to Paper


In this playful interdisciplinary work Nielsen responds to Sophie Taeuber-Arp’s (1889-1943) text ‘Remarks on Teaching Decorative Design’ (1922) for a series of drawings on paper.

For the first 15 years of Taeuber-Arp’s career she taught Design and Embroidery at The Zurich School of Art and Craft, and in this text she shows how to develop textile design. A rare insight into her creativity method, it is translated into English for the first time by Nielsen. Taeuber-Arp saw applied and fine art as equals, despite the art world relegating textiles, a ‘feminine’ form of craft, to the sidelines.
