2022 Folk Art exhibition, Norsk Folke Museum

Beautiful Norwegian arts and crafts beautifully displayed. This was part of a Norwegian folk arts exhibition. ‘Folk art’ feels such a strange concept to me. Why isn’t it art? It feels similar to the now abandoned ‘Primitive art’. I did really like the acknowledgement that clothing and fabric was reused as part of the process of making and design. The lighting and display of the objects in large cases was beautiful but to be honest I am not a big fan of text on glass. Hard to read (and to photograph).
