︎This, That.

Solo exhibition at Telok Ayer Arts Club, Singapore, 2019.

This body of work is part of a continued investigation into the devaluing or trivialising of what are commonly deemed as “domestic” and/or women’s crafts - crocheting, macrame, embroidery, knitting, and specifically weaving and handspinning of yarn. In renegotiating its value and place in contemporary art, new synergies place the objects in the intersection between art, design and craft.

Honoring the unseen labor of women and what is termed as “domestic aesthetics”, the work was built with materials such as handspun yarn of merino wool and locally-harvested kapok cotton woven into tapestries, which are then balanced in symbiosis with wood and acrylic.
