As an update to our previous post about ‘Glass Onion’, Dovecot Studios has announced that from 6 March to 25 April 2015 Magne will have a major exhibition of works at Dovecot, and ‘Glass Onion’ will form the centerpiece to this multi-disciplinary show. Both BBC Arts and Cover Magazine have recently featured news about the tapestry and upcoming exhibition.
“The Glass Onion tapestry was woven at Dovecot in summer 2014 and now forms the centrepiece to this exhibition. During further insightful visits to Dovecot, Furuholmen embraced the notion of exposing his work to the craft and perspective of others with a different focus in process to his own. This experience, coupled with the cultural and environmental impact of being in and around Dovecot and the building itself, inspired a new body of work for the exhibition using music, film, printmaking and large scale ceramic.”
The film below is a documentation of the ‘Glass Onion Tapestry’ project, and includes music composed by Magne as well:

On October 15, Magne was present at Dovecot Studios for a special private ceremony, to cut the tapestry from the loom. Dovecot shared these photos from the event on Facebook:
