Anamneses

This body of work draws specifically on memories of sewing with my grandmother and of my experiences in India embroidering with women in remote villages. I am interested in how textiles function within a culture, in how they are used from birth to death, in rituals, ceremonies and everyday life. Resources may be limited so fabric is often recycled to patch worn clothing or to make quilts. Other items are created for special occasions such as weddings or other religious events. These textile activities, often a communal one, are handed down from generation to generation and the textiles that are produced become containers and objects of memory, tradition and experience.
