Lace

Tumble Dry Low is part of a large-scale sculpture, video, and ephemera project based on the concepts of privacy, intimacy, and domesticity. I collect inexpensive, manufactured lace pieces as well as antique, discarded linens and cast them over my body creating a dialogue between which bodies are viewed and concealed. Throughout my art practice, I am gathering fabric and shaping it over my body, to explore a relationship between women’s labor, the domestic space, and my personal experience of it.  I am also examining how these roles impact privacy, intimacy, and cultural dictations of motherhood. With the curve of my body on the hard concrete, and this shitty tablecloth as my only cover, I contemplate the weight of isolation as in contrast to privacy.
