Of Warmth and Bones
Of Warmth and Bones (2019) is a series of sculptures that deal with warmth, death, and memory. As if hoping to preserve the warmth and memory of a departed body, I crocheted sheep yarn around the femur, mandibles and humerus of various animals.
Sheep wool is at the center of my family’s hat-making tradition: it is our lifeline, the fiber connecting our memories. Weaving it is an act of remembrance, an exercise against the coldness of forgetting.
