Greta Grip enjoys pulling the strings of what is traditional knitting and winding it around the digital age. Greta started to exhibit her knitted food in 2009, since then her practice has evolved from knitting QR codes to EL wire.
Currently, Grip knits with her hacked knitting machine. Hacked it by removing itsoriginal brain and replacing it with an USB port. Focused on a practice of exploring the use of layering texts and symbols, colours and textures; foregoing the unfinished and flawed, Grip’s work challenges the understanding of what knitting is supposed to look like.
Her signature labels: A treasure to remember by Greta Grip is the finale as she once again pokes fun at the seriousness of what is art.
