Textile Show: stitching in your shape

Lan “Florence” Yee, Lauren D’Ambrosio, Par Nair, Zainab Hussain.
Thursday January 5th to Saturday February 4th, 2023

Opening Reception:
Thursday January 5th, 5:30 to 8:00 pm

stitching in your shape showcases the work of multidisciplinary textile based works from artists Lan “Florence” Yee, Lauren D’Ambrosio, Par Nair, and Zainab Hussain. The exhibition examines the work of labour, language and textiles in expressing the collective grief of homesickness and disconnection.

Tying familial relations through the common threads of textiles and embroidery, stitching in your shape gives audiences space to sit with lived experiences of tenuous, disembodied connection, accentuated by the complications of safety restrictions during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Using labour in textile work as a practice of commemoration, meditation, and complicated catharsis, stitching in your shape incorporates practices and materials from everyday life to monumentalize a longing for familial connection.

This exhibition has been generously supported by the Toronto Arts Council.
