A few years ago I accidentally crashed some of my dearest plates that I have been given Inheritance by my Mother and my Grandmathere’s. legacy memory of woman ancestry in my family, shattered in front of my eyes. The tragedy of the scene made me stop and observe the moment. I couldn’t stand the idea that these plates have no value or purpose anymore and now I need to throw them away. At this moment I started to see beauty in the destruc and the fragments as a new whole piece. This change in point of view, made me rethink and wonder about havoc and loss, how the way of coping was automatically dictated in my eyes without noticing. how Western culture Lost his value to the object, from the flash of the fast fashion and materials, the wanting of the new, something broke we throw away something torn or dirty we do not repair,mend or reuse. in my work I strive to bring the sensation of the moment of the shattered picture as we know. by choosing a technique of laborious meticulous handcraft who normally we the western culture see in the Haute Couture or in an ancient museum behind glasses. the assembling of the hand craft technique with worthless similitude together brings new and high value to the fragments. Technique: Hand embroidery, Monoprint silk print and Papier mâché | Materials: cotton sewing threads, old Jackard tablecloth, beads and papier mâché from old newspaper
