HULDRA

SANDLAND

PRESENTED IN TABLEAU, OCTOBER 2021

HULDRA IS A FURNITURE SERIES CREATED BY THE DUO SANDLAND, WHERE THE STORY OF THE MYTHICAL CREATURE HULDRA UNFOLDS IN THREE PARTS.
[READ MORE]THE DESIGN IS INSPIRED BY MYSTERIOUS AND MYTHICAL NOTIONS FROM NORWEGIAN AND SCANDINAVIAN FOLKLORE, STORIES, AND TALES WHERE REALITY, IMAGINATION, AND MYSTIQUE ARE MELTED TOGETHER. HULDRA IS A BEAUTIFUL AND DANGEROUS CREATURE. SHE IS ALLURING AND UNCOMPROMISING. THE FEMME WAS FATAL OF THE FOREST. SHE IS PART OF THE DEEP FOREST, AND THE FOREST IS A PART OF HER. HULDRA CAN TAKE MANY SHAPES; SHE CAN BE A STUMP OR A TREE, HER SKIN COVERED IN BARK AND MOSS. SHE ALSO TAKES A HUMAN-LIKE FORM, AS A WOMAN WITH A COW TAIL THAT IS HIDDEN AT FIRST GLANCE, BUT WHICH REVEALS HER NATURE WHEN YOU COME CLOSER. HULDRA CAN BOTH CARE AND COMFORT, ENTICE AND SCARE ANYONE WHO TRAVELS ON HER GROUNDS. HULDRA’S STORY IS TOLD WITH HER ENTICING TAIL AS THE OVERALL SILHOUETTE IN THE FURNITURE DESIGN. AMONG THE ELEMENTS OF THE FOREST ONLY HER TAIL APPEARS, WHILE HULDRA HERSELF HIDES IN THE LIGHT PINE AND WOOL TEXTURES AND PATTERNS, AS SHE HIDES IN THE DEEP AND DARK PINEWOODS IN THE ANCIENT TALES. MAYBE WE CAN LOOK AT HULDRA AS A MISUNDERSTOOD BEING; A COMPLEX AND KNOWLEDGEABLE CREATURE THAT IN MANY STORIES HAS BEEN DEGRADED TO A BEAUTIFUL FIGURE WHOSE MULTIPLE IDENTITIES ARE DESCRIBED AS SOMETHING FRIGHTENING. WITH THE FURNITURE SERIES, HULDRA SANDLAND WISHES TO EXPLORE HOW HULDRA IS BOTH SOFT AND HARD, BRUTE AND BEAUTIFUL, PROTECTIVE AND WILD.
