Monte Vista Projects, Los Angeles, CA JUNE 27-July 25, 2009
FOLKLORE series is comprised of two single-channel animated videos and one three-dimensional quilt block sculpture. I am connecting the dual role of physical and aesthetic labor in my maternal and paternal grandmothers’ lives, and examining how family histories are preserved through folklore and folk crafts that reflect the daily histories and lives of working women.
UNTITLED (from FOLKLORE series)
Animated digital video
Running time 3:20 minutes
Utilizing the idea of quilting as piecing together fragments to create a whole image, this animated digital video combined found images as well as personal photographs that reference the history of women’s labor in America (specific to my family).
