The Roundness of Body Shapes | 2019



These embroideries contain a few stories; the timeworn denim was made in Pernambuco, from 1940 to 1970, by my paternal grandfather, who patented it under the name of Leão do Norte. Along with the fabric itself, the silk thread that outlines its stains make up part of my mother’s intimate legacy.
