Gudrun Hasle

Working in various mediums, such as embroidery, banners, photography and video, Gudrun Hasle’s works are based on her own experiences. Diagnosed dyslexic, she is alienated from communicating and decoding written statements in everyday life. Despite this, she confesses her daily concerns to the beholder through simple but misspelled sentences embroidered in textiles, making her works present and almost unbearably relevant. Difficulty decoded, it makes the viewer feel dyslexic and inverts the power relation. Thus, it reflects the norms in society and the feeling of being incapable of following them.
