I samarbete med Wave festival kurerar Skräddare som rebell en veckad paviljong. 
En paviljong där 10 tält konstverk står i dialog med festivalen och skapar veck och fållor på festivalområdet. 
Tälten representeras av en konstnär eller mindre kurerade utställningar i utställningen. 
Den textila Paviljongens struktur och upprepning skapar en mötesplats där konst, samtal och musik får flöda. 

//Skräddare som rebell är en grupp beståendes av konstnärer kuratorer, skribenter som alla kommer från textila familjer. Genom att kollektivt prova idéer om det textila arvet, det veckade, vill gruppen utvidga begreppet för vad en utställning och ett samtal kan vara.




The art pavilion consists of ten tents represented by an artist or smaller curated exhibitions within the exhibition. It has been put together by a group of artists called ”Tailor As Rebel”, and they're all artists, curators or writers who share a common background as they all come from families, where one member or more have been active in the textile / tailoring industry. By collectively trying out ideas about the textile heritage and what they call the ”plaited mind”, the group wants to expand the concept of what an exhibition and dialogue might be. And the repetative structure of the tent pavilion creates a meeting place where art, conversation and music can flow.

In Alina Vergnano’s work the body and the female figure become a visual metaphor to represent the otherwise abstract states of mind which she aims to explore with her practice. Her work as an artist focuses mostly on drawing and sculpture and their interaction. She uses different materials as clay, plaster, steel, paper and textile to create works of the most variable dimensions, from small delicate sculptures to big installations of works on papers.
