Tanya, ton silence | 2004



Onto a white smock of the kind they wore in perfoming their work, I embroidered a list of names of domestic servants with whom I shared intimacy and affection during various periods in my life; in this work, I sometimes remembered nothing beyond a name, a fact or just a face, until the women reappeared fully and completely to my mind.
