Daydreams of Intimacy
Daydreams of Intimacy – 2018
COTTON HANKERCHEIFS, WAX, RED COTTON THREAD
The play of children with adult collections leave nostalgic and powerful memories.
By revisiting personal inherited objects from my childhood, my mother’s handkerchiefs shape my personal experience of loss while acknowledging the inimitable presence of memory these inherited possessions hold. Transforming these squares of cloth alluding to ‘dolls’ evokes a time when memories were pure, simple and light.
