How to Live with a Broken Heart


2021. Fabric, paper, cotton thread. 600x600x10mm.This hand stitched apron is a material meditation by the artist on her emotional-psychological responses to the escalating climate crisis and last summer’s stupendous fires. It is a garment made by and for the artist being (an) Attendant in/of/to the world. The body is a collage of fabrics dyed and printed using local plant material. The straps are old, worn, found fabric. Overlaid is a Dada poem constructed from a book of Greta Thunberg’s speeches cut into single lines of text, randomly reassembled, making a nonsense of her pleas to humanity to wake up and take action.
