A series of aprons inspired by the hidden aspects of women’s history and the enigmatic, owner-less aprons that have survived in museums. Aprons are an under-appreciated art form, which are often left languishing in museum collections without any in-depth study. For me they represent the lives of the makers and owners of those aprons, whose stories are hidden from us, inside a bubble of time.
Time Bubble 1 & 2 were made for and exhibited at Unit Twelve in 2011 as part of an exhibition I co-curated with Jennifer Collier.
All three aprons will be exhibited at Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre from November 2013.
