Anna Nordström utilizes a wide range of textile techniques, including patchwork, quilting and embroidery. The traditional, or more common ways of creating are modified to concern thoughts on work, labour, status, value and (lack of) professionalism. The expression of the materials plays an important part, and are chosen based on specific qualities and connotations. Often purchased on sale, and often saying something about femininity. Nordström is one of the founding members of Den Nya Kvinnogruppen (The New Womens Group), a collective consisting of six artists that do workshops, seminars and exhibitions about material based art and feminism.
