Starting with non-traditional materials such as used wool blankets, nylon stockings, rain gear and knitted hats, Løvaas & Wagle create works that are simulaneously visually striking, surprising and abundant with references to art history. In addition to many wall tapestries, the artists have received several decoration commissions, most recently for the façade of the Oslo Opera House. This catalogue is based on the exhibition, which displayed works from various phases of Løvaas & Wagle’s artistry from 1980 until 2008.
