OLIVIA RODE HVASS // BURN THE WORLD
6 – 22 August 2021

 

BURN THE WORLD is a tribute to the uprising of the weavers in Lyon in the late 19th century, who threw their wooden shoes into the industrial looms to disrupt production and sabotage the machines that took their jobs and livelihood.

Sabot (sabo’), in French, means wooden shoe and the action of the weavers throwing their shoes into the looms, is said to be the foundation of the term Sabotage as we know and use it today.

This has been the foundation of the sabotage series shown in Arcway this August, a series of tapestries picturing cartoony-heroins fighting back the systems who left them hungry on the street.


Olivia Rode Hvass (b 1995) is an artist based in Aarhus / Copenhagen.
She holds a BFA from Jutland Art Academy, Denmark.
