Minna Liisi Ylitalo
I'm a Finnish textile designer currently living and breathing in Copenhagen, Denmark. My work circles in layers around the human body. I use mixed textiles techniques together with form to create unique material collections. In the process I’m interested in playing around with 2D and 3D, abstract and concrete. Work is completed with vigorous and energetic experimentation where there is plenty of space for the unplanned. I want to do justice to material and load it with potential, communicate its abilities and add value to it. In my own process it is important to challenge my own aesthetics, to be surprised and discover familiar things again from a new angle – make cheap expensive, serious light, rigid soft.
