Embroidering in silence | 2009 (IN PROGRESS)



To make my own what I received as an inheritance—a linen tablecloth set from my parents’ wedding trousseau—, I began to cover its printwork in free embroidery that I created along with relatives and friends who contributed to the making of this work.

  • printed linen tablecloth set, free embroidery on cotton
  • variable dimensions
  • EXHIBITIONS: “Nós,” Caixa Cultural, Rio de Janeiro and Brasília, Brazil / “Poética têxtil,” Oficina Cultural Oswald de Andrade, São Paulo, Brazil
