In the wee hours of the morning, the classic obelisk in Borås was graced with a new outfit, courtesy of guerilla knitter Maria Hallin.
“It was a totally wild idea. I want to give this forgotten monument new life, make people pay attention to it again. The whole point of its location was to stand out, something that is no longer the case, since there now are high-rise buildings around. And since I’m into color and art in so many ways, this seemed like an approach that was crazy enough for me.”
Prior to this, Maria’s biggest guerrilla knitting challenge was a birch tree at the Textile Fashion Center, but the obelisk was a trickier customer…
“Seeing as the monument isn’t exactly new, there aren’t any dimensions on record, so I’ve had to figure the size out on the fly. I’m hoping this yarn art will brighten up this ‘poor forgotten’ monument,” Ms. Hallin says with a smile.
The “Toothpick” as it’s popularly known, was made to commemorate a visit by King Carl XIV Johan to Borås in 1821, though it wasn’t in place until 38 years later. The original location was the main square, but in 1940/1941, it was replaced by the Nils Sjögren fountain and moved to the intersection of Yxhammarsgatan and Allégatan.

Founded in Los Angeles in 2005, and located in the Culver City art district since 2009, Thinkspace was established with a commitment to the promotion and dissemination of young and emerging art. The gallery is a catalytic conduit for the emerging New Contemporary art scene, and is dedicated to the exposure of its tenets and its artists. This movement, straddled between popular culture, graphic art, design and street art, is subject to steadily increasing global expansion, and is in need of institutional advocates.
Thinkspace is positioned to create opportunities and a visible platform for its recognition and proliferation. The movement is young, but significant, and Thinkspace’s aim is to establish both a curatorial forum and a collector base for its output. As an institution, Thinkspace is committed to vision, risk, and the exceptional talents that wield it. From the streets, to the gallery, from the “margins”, to the white cube, Thinkspace is re-envisioning what it means to be “institutional”. As a haven for talent, and a venue founded in passion, conviction, and community, the gallery’s mandate is rooted in projections for its future longevity. We intend to be a vehicle for the talents we vet for year’s to come, and are passionate advocates for their vision and their dreams.
