Navigating the physical and emotional impact of human migration
Exploring themes of labour, tactility and care
Decontextualising materials and sewing to question their affective power
If you consider the past as part of the present,
A space is never empty, it is saturated with stories,
It is shaped by the labour within it and shapes all those who pass through it.
To fully experience 'This Fragile Ground' please watch in a dark, quiet room with headphones. Immerse yourself and become aware of the textures around you, consider the labour that bore them and the stories they tell.
Materials: Strips of an old sheet, Thread, Needles, Onions, Mic, Sara Ahmed- Queer Phenomenology, Clare Hunter- Threads of Life, Tim Ingold.
