Untitled (bed linens 1),  2017

30 cm x 3.5 m long 

 

This piece uses two old mattress protector, taken apart and re-woven back together. Looking at ideas of intimacy and relationships, this piece highlights the taboo and often “hidden” parts of our private lives. Bodily evidence such as stains from the body and blood are shown in a way that is not confronting or shocking. Instead they are elegant woven together, amplifying the textures of the woven piece. This distance between the two woven pieces are also significant, in that they represent a distance where if two people were facing each other is both intimate yet comfortable. The bodily materiality also questions the histories of the materials. Who do these stains - in a sense DNA - belong to? what relationships and connections fo they carry?
