Sew What


sew what is an installation that resulted from my MA Art & Process in 2014. This is a rethinking of the domestic space, highlighting the ways in which space, and representations of space, produce and reproduce gender. The place of living, the space where one lives turn out to be an imagined idealised notion of intimacy, shelter and sanctity. This work explores notions of places of living where the self lives and where the body lives as being inherently gendered. Placing housewife, motherhood and domesticity as axles of femininity and the romanticised core of women’s life.
