woven identities or the value of intertwined identities and societies
My rugs symbolize a society in which everything and everyone is interwoven. With simple cross-stitches one can embroider symbols that refer to all possible cultures and societies, bringing them together on one cloth. The symbols I use express different identities, including my own. With a wink to the traditional sampler (embroidered narrative of identity mostly made by women).
