In Line’s hands, the innate, sleeping value of something is awakened and elevated; accentuating her belief that everything possesses something charming and worthwhile. Her work is her own quiet riot against the mass-produced and mechanical – a Wunderkammer of patched time-travel treasures. In mending the broken, she inevitably seeks to mend the heart.
Weaving in emotions from her museum of memories, Line’s intuitive process draws on years of work as a textile collector and consultant. Part conservator and maker, she finds beauty in the abandoned, collecting and assembling new and reimagined garments, soft furnishings, and accessories, imbued with a sense of humility and appreciation of the world’s resources.
Rooted in her countryside upbringing near some of Denmarks historic estates where the old-fashioned ‘thou’ was still in use, Line’s work springs from the magic of storytelling: in tightly scribbled notebooks, trawling through dusty flea markets and time spent in hidden attic chambers under Parisian rooftops. Her work is a place of dreaming and wonder, translated into valuable and useful pieces to cherish.
