The shadows of the 4th dimension dress themselves, and perhaps you as well, in a handprinted collection of patterned clothing. The prints align to one another which gives a collection where you decide whether you’d like to travel to widths of flailing flowers, ghastly ghosts or mesmerizing mazes?
Pattern dreams will come true in The Einar Jónsson Museum where Drífa Líftóra will showcase her new collection What lurks in the shadows of the 4th dimension. The collection burst into existence from Drífa’s thoughts on how fear of the dark is, in fact, the maze of the mind and the distortion that happens during shadow play. Those thoughts produced two pattern categories. Whithin each category every pattern can both stand on it’s own and align with the others. This makes it possible to create many compositions of different kinds of patterns. The fabrics are all screen printed by the hand of Drífa herself who will be in the museum to help any one who wishes to have more patterns in their lives.
Drífa Líftóra graduated with a BA degree in fashion design from The Iceland University of the Arts spring 2014.

Deciding to further her studies she started her diploma in textiles at Reykjavík School of Visual Arts graduating spring 2020. Drífa Líftóra received a grant from the Design Fund to realize the collection What lurks in the shadows of the 4th dimension.
