Pink, white, lace, weaving and paper are used in this work to symbolise solidarity for women. Pink, that shade between white and red. Lace in the form of web-like patterns printed on mass-produced paper (washi tape), rather than constructed. Weaving interlaces and integrates traditional techniques and concepts with contemporary interpretations and fabrication, creating flower-like and ripple patterns. To be in the pink is to be in good health, to bloom, like a/the flower – pinks.
