The project Tactile Conversations takes the form of still life photography, presented in a book alongside short essays and narrated through a discussion I had with Danish weaver Pia Jensen, in Copenhagen, in February 2017.
In the three sculptures, windows act as a visual metaphor for access to memory and personal experience.
Each of the sculpture is assosiated with a woman and her memories.
The yellow installation represents a Cypriot woman, with a gifted doily hanging among other objects.
The green installation represents Pia Jensen, a weaver living in Copenhagen. During our meetng, Pia talked about her memory of a Syrian woman and how the raw silk she gave her was used to create her own scarves. Some of Pia’s weaving samples are included in the installation. The red installation is a representation of one's personal memories, and how that partakes in one's sense of self, including hand-made embroideries.
