Installation at 54 The Gallery

In this piece, originally a site specific work created for a three storey flour mill, chains of lace tatting run like threads throughout the building. The form of the suspended shuttle suggests a trajectory downwards through the space, a sense of the needle piercing cloth, the transition of memory being passed down. Textiles are often evocative of memory, inheritance, passing down experience through generations. In this video installation, a tatting lesson is taking place between the artist and her grandmother among the sensitive chains of lace, white like flour, blossom or snowflakes falling.
