Cotton embroidery on fabric (1,10 m * 1,10 m) and video (6 ‘ 05 ‘‘)
Expressing gratitude, a ritual of sociability.
Embroidery is a widespread practice yet neglected and very time absorbing.
For three hours, needle and thread in hand, as I scan the features of each face, my attention is drawn to the person being embroidered, to the memories of the situations we've experienced together.
Embroidery is a gesture that allows us to take the time to pay homage to the encounter with another person.
In the video, a choreography inspired by gestures expressing gratitude.
