As a society, we are collectively subjected to an incessant focus on that which is intolerable. Global crises dominate the media and have a very real impact on the way we perceive the world we inhabit and our personal role in it.
This collection of works utilise the repetitious actions of wrapping, hammering and stitching found in silversmithing and textile processes, to explore the material qualities of softness and subtlety. The outcome of this form of mark making inverts notions of the unbearable by ritualistically drawing attention to the small details of living…writing, reading, time in nature… which makes the everyday not only endurable, but poetic.
