This handprinted ramie textile cabin, inspired by wood grain is originally made for an exhibition “ A true copy – young designers in the museum”, in the Danish Museum of Art and Design 1994. For the exhibition seven designers each made an imaginative invention around an object in the permanent collection. Louise Sass constructed a “Nomad Cabin”, in the form of a tent of material and poles, made as a parafrase of a cupboard from the Rococo period.

Through the Shadow into the Light, solo exhibition
March 25 – april 8. 2012
The exhibition featured a selection of one-off textile prints from 2008 – 11, and marked the release of a new book with the same title. Exhibition architect Martin Christiansen.
In the recent years Louise Sass, has developed a working technique, using pure colours, which are printed onto the fabric in overlapping layers – accordingly called “overprinting”. The idea of doing this is to bring about a colour blending method that happens directly on the textile, where the process and the colour’s movement can be followed on the fabric, while the colour’s saturated tone gets built up. The effect of dyeing fabric in several stages simultaneously entails that intense and more complex colour effects turn up on the surface.Show all text
The exhibition Gennem Skyggen ud i Lyset (Through the Shadow into the Light) 2012 displays a selection of textile print from 2008-11. During that time Louise Sass investigated and developed a systematic colour alphabet. One colour scale features overlapping layers of different saturations of the three primary colours. Another — expanded — palette mixes moderate concentrations of the three primary colours with seven different degrees of black to investigate colour and light. The result is a highly nuanced array of colour variations and grey tones. This systematic investigation of a colour spectrum is the experiential basis of a series of independent experimental works included in the exhibition.

The wall-frieze handprint, Labyrint (Labyrinth) delineates, with slender luminous lines, a rhythm that settles over the textile’s fluctuating dark field. It is shimmering in nuances, against the backing fields of dark turquoise and warm orange and it appears fragile, albeit simultaneously stringent and precise
The inspiration for Labyrint stems from a hand-woven French shawl originating from the 1920s. Taking her point of departure in a sample of the shawl’s labyrinthine pattern, Louise Sass has intensified the pattern’s stringency in a plotted rendering made on graph paper, where each and every turn in the labyrinth’s progression has been scrupulously notated with precise measurements – but this is only a point of origin. In the course of the process, the labyrinth takes on its own life, unfurling itself independently as form and structure – controlled by Sass, of course, but also by the possibilities for which the labyrinth itself has opened up.

The Biennale of Crafts and Design 2007
Panorama # 1, # 2, # 3
One-off textiles, handpainted
The Panorama textiles were created during the work on the decorations for the Serafen supportive housing complex in Stockholm, which included a hand-painted wall frieze on thick cotton. As a result of the architecture in Stockholm, the ”Panorama” wall frieze for Serafen is very broad and relatively short. During the process I found I wanted to cut out parts of the powerful colour sequence to view them at more radical heights – and painted three sections in a longer version.
Motivation by Biennale curators Ole Jensen and Lars Dybdahl:
Here patterns and ornament have been emancipated from the materiality with which one normally associates artist-craftsmanship – and have become autonomous visuality. Louise Sass’ stripes are an interplay of extreme colour shades in an unconventional spatial and tonal pattern.

Works on paper
The exhibition revolves around interfaces and the meaning of spaces. The paintings, individually and in relation to one another, form a dynamic space where the surroundings are drawn into an interplay with vision and motion when the viewer moves in the space. The boundaries between surface and space become diffuse.

Louise Sass - Separate exhibition On the occasion of The Söderberg Prize 1998.
The exhibition showed one-off printed textiles, works on paper and product design.
En Route # 2 and En Route # 1
On the occasion of The Söderberg Prize 1998.
Motivation from the prize jury:
For richly promising, internationally remarked work as a textile designer, undertaken with great artistic talent, which derives its inspiration from an independently made, dynamic and fruitful penetration into pattern composition for a variety of materials – everything from printed textiles to arrangements of complete rooms, artistically related to music and sculpture.
