‘Little Pockets of Care Pt.1’ 2022

Thread, Scrap Fabric and Clothing

On Saturday the 5th of February 2022, 22 participants gathered in a gallery. The walls laid almost bare, with only the names of those present scattered carefully around.

The event gathered all the garments I had mended since the end of September, mending them for free, with the attendance of this event as the only payment.

The gathering sought to pose questions around ownership, worth and the functionality of art, while simultaneously opening up conversations about care, compassion and sustainability through the simple act of giving.

My goal is to continue this project, hosting further events, with a growing number of people each time.
