Line Solberg Dolmen works mainly with textiles in spatial installations, which reflect contemporary issues. Resource utilization, mobility, mobility, flexibility and belonging have been central themes in her recent work. The ongoing ‘Field Trip’ series consists of hand-applied tapestries; a form of textile drawings, and spatial installation, and further a nomadic theme in which the artist’s own travels and walks are recorded. In the works, the artist often uses materials that have previously had a useful use, such as worn sheets, mass-produced shopping nets, tarpaulins, wool blankets and fleece blankets.
Solberg Dolmen stood out early on Oslo’s art scene, including the solo exhibition Oil and Water at SOFT Gallery, which marked the end of the Norwegian Textile Artists’ anniversary year (NTK) in 2017.
She graduated with an MA from the Oslo Academy of the Arts (2016) and a BA from the Art Academy in Tromsø (2010).
In addition, she has a certificate as a dress and costume tailor. In recent years, the artist has shown works at SOFT gallery, Kunsthall Stavanger, Kunstnerforbundet, Akershus Kunstsenter, Høstutstilling and Nordens Hus in Torshavn, Faroe Islands.
