ARTFORUM TAPESTRY SERIES
2019-2021, materials: Artforum magazine pages, waxed linen thread, jewelry wire, metal
In this series, I repurpose the pages of Artforum magazine to reflect on the relationship between consumerism, gender and the contemporary art market. The pages, rolled and bound with wire, simultaneously hide and reveal content, signifying the tension of inclusion and exclusion within the market. Threaded together, pages containing art criticism and glossy advertisements are reimagined from historically situated texts into a perceptual field of color and composition. In this transformative process, I adapt the power dynamics of the traditionally male-dominated art market into the traditionally feminine craft of tapestries.
