Helena Hernmarck is a Swedish-born tapestry artist and weaver best known for her monumental tapestries designed for architectural settings. In this presentation, Hernmarck will illustrate the evolution of her signature weaving technique, highlighting important commissions including her recent commission at 35 Hudson Yards in New York. The commission, Maple Trees, involved the creation of two sets of tapestries that extend up the wall and across the ceiling of the elevator lobby in the building’s residential entrance. Each set spans approximately 225 square feet. Hernmarck will discuss the challenges and triumphs involved in designing for this unique space and in creating a method to install the tapestries.
