Family Portraits. Dry Pigment Imprints.
Both intimate and universal, rags are used across classes and cultures becoming unique palimpsests with ingrained powerful yet residual stories from our lives. Ragged Along re-frames and reenacts more than 200 donated cloths into affective materials, actions, and spaces that embody female narratives of transition, resilience, labour and creativity within the domestic. Overall, the piece expands the artist’s research around residues and femininity, urging us to reflect on the leftover pieces of unclean stories that rightfully shape us.
