Butler och Lindgård

Butler/Lindgård is a Swedish design duo, specialized in textile design. The duo consists of Hanna Butler and Karin Olu Lindgård, both with a B.A. in textile design from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Design, in Copenhagen.

The works of Butler/Lindgård commonly emerge out of an analogue sketch process, where the two partners create in close collaboration with each other and the materials. The creating process is often, brought forth by an unexpected issue, or a comic observation. Hanna and Karin normally work in close proximity, in a nearly symbiotic state, where “mine and yours” is blurred and replaced with “we”. They draw and paint on the same paper, alternately or simultaneously, while maintaining a continuous and reflective conversation regarding colours, rhythms and tones. Authenticity, sensuousness and presence of the human hand, are all, important guidelines in the work of the duo, and this might be why their work appeal to both the body and the mind.


The works of Butler/Lindgård is not necessarily in textile materials, but always from a textile point of view.
