Description

We are living through wild times. When there’s so much being lost, our personal becomes political, and political becomes personal.

In “Lost/Found”, a large scale tapestry tells a story of the stranglehold of addiction; the tailored shirt is enlarged, warped, and dismantled, commenting on gender normativity and patriarchal oppression; used garments gain new identities in the form of painterly compositions. An installation of prints playfully explores the idea of “cuteness” and its relation with consumption in a post-internet society; body-centric modular fabric structures propose new solutions for intimacy in domestic spaces. Flesh like knitted forms hang heavily in tension reminding us of the emotional and political challenges women still face in the context of an unwanted pregnancy. A collection of hand knitted and woven works inspired by textile traditions, motherhood and inherited legacies provides a vision of intergenerational dialogue and collaboration. A dinner party table setting incites revolution.

The work featured in Lost/Found results of nine months of questioning and reflection, throughout which the eight artists used textiles to voice their truth, reconnect with their collective history and, collaboratively, find new narratives of empowerment.
