In Out of Line Kristiina Lahde continues her on-going exploration of found materials. In this most recent body of work Lahde places lines on new paths so that they bend and break away from conventions. Humble things found in libraries and offices such as index cards, carbon paper, file folders, paper clips and rulers are re-imagined and given alternate forms. Found lines are duplicated, repeated and connected so that they spiral, bend, drape and slice. Lahde’s approach breathes new life into objects that are often overlooked, allowing for a formal and poetic reflection on process, labour and use. The artist provides fuel for a slow-burning speculation about the everyday and how objects and forms might otherwise be regarded in our world
