Obsolescence: domestic objects entirely covered in stamped embroidery by Ulla-Stina Wikander

Ulla-Stina Wikander is a Swedish embroidery artist from Kungälv, currently living in Stockholm/Kullavik. In her ongoing series titled Obsolescence, which started in 2012, Wikander gives new life to ordinary household items from the 70s, covering them in colorful, vintage stitchings.

“I find it interesting to see how these objects transform in a new context; the obsolete, the things we do not want any longer, the old and forgotten things. They become artifacts from a begone era, disguised, camouflaged and dressed. I give them a second life and although I cut the embroideries into pieces, I think they look very beautiful, when they have been ‘dressed up’.” – Ulla-Stina Wikander.
