1000 Heirlooms and Artifacts of Our Mothers and Grandmothers
These small installations are the beginning of a much larger work; a community work. At this time I am searching and applying for grant money to create the larger work to be assembled using articles of southern heritage and culture.
Through the donations of articles, such as pillow cases, slips, handkerchiefs, bun warmer clothes, tea towels I plan to create a giant representation of days-gone-by of obsolete cultural items. The plan is to transfer photocopies of corresponding family photos from a donor to the borrowed clothesline item. After the gathering of 1000's pieces, transferring photos, and tagging all of the items, I will arrange an art event of the hanging. All items will be returned to the donors, if they wish to be kept as a memento of the performance piece. Go Here to Connect and Donate.
