a labour of stitches

a labour of stitches connects the traditionally public masculinized labour of work at sea and the historically private feminized labour of sewing and domestic making through two 15-foot quilted sails. Hung back to back, they make an enclosure to stand inside of, recalling travel by sea and travel by night in dreams.
