A Stitch in Time

By using intricate and painstaking techniques of embroidery, collage and cutting; Inge Jacobsen makes high fashion images her own.

“I am disrupting the easy consumption of these images. For example I’m in the process of creating a series made up of covers of Vogue magazine that I cross-stitch into. This process makes the covers very tactile and it creates something that is impossible to reproduce on a large scale because each piece is unique and handmade. I feel I have taken it out of circulation and made it something of my own,” explains Jacobsen.

I guess you could say – a stitch in time saves a fleeting image forever more.
