This installation is a thread rendering based on part of my kitchen in my previous home. I create these thread drawings by sewing onto a material that dissolves in water which allows me to layer the thread so that when the fabric is later removed, the thread holds together by with the accumulated thread. I am interested in the vulnerability of thread in relation to the home as both things feel temporary and fragile. Making this piece required me to re-visit, remember and re-create a space that I called home but is no longer mine. This piece is a stand in, a synthetic, re-created version of home.
This project was produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council.
