Textile Designer: Inge Jacobsen

 

Inge Jacobsen is an artist who describes her practise as an ‘intervention into the photographic image.’ She uses embroidery as a way to physically interact with and alter an image. The use of embroidery is a way to connect femininity from the past with the present, ‘My concerns as an artist are the photographic image as an object and the way women are objectified through photography.’ Inge Jacobsen wants the viewer to acknowledge the surface of the image rather than look through it and see it as an object.
